I am having a major spring clean at home and as a result have loads of things to get rid of. It seems a shame to throw out things that are OK when they could be put to use by others. It's a varied selection from books and computer games to cuddly toys and clothes.

I don't want to have to take the items to lots of different places & I'm not a boot sale kind of girl.

Does anyone know of organisations that do jumble sales or who might be able to put the stuff to good use?

cats protection league, it's also a good idea to phone local schools as quite a few have summer fetes & bazaars, plus they have more storage space....

The old folks home over the road from you have a fete once a year - just an idea.

Or there is a charity shop on the other side of tower bridge road - the pagoda side.

English Martyrs Church, Rodney Road usually have a jumble sale I am not quite sure but I think its the first Monday evening in the month - and I am sure they would appreciate "things" rather than just clothes.

There's a charity based in King's Cross that I read about a while ago who are keen to take on people's old household items, then recondition them to give to people who are setting up home for the first time - usually homeless people who have just stopped being homeless. I can't remember the name, but I'll trawl through my memory to see if I can remember any more details. They might be listed on the web....

Hi Rachel - there are some very nice people always grateful for good jumble at St Hugh's Church - the Rainbow Building in Crosby Row, SE1. Sale every Wednesday - drop stuff in on the day from around 10.30 I think. Part of Charterhouse-in-Southwark - a deserving local charitable org.

Don't know what you've got but if you've any craft materials, especially knitting yarns, needles and patterns let me know - I run a knitting workshop every Tuesday 10.30 - 12.30. Charterhouse-in-Southwark, 40 Tabard Street, SE1.

I would if they took things other than clothes....

Thanks to everyone who replied with information. I'm sure I'll be able to find everything a good home now.
