    Not sure if this is the right forum, feel free to move it mods, if better suited somewhere else.

    Just wondering if anyone knows anywhere taking physical donations of food and gifts/ toys for Christmas?
    Lots of websites where you can give can virtual gift, but I have a bit of stuff, new things, that might be helpful to someone else.

    St Vincent de Paul are always good, plenty of families who would be delighted with new stuff at this time of year and it's great that what you're giving would stay local. Each area should have its own "branch"

    I second the St Vincent de Paul's idea. They really are a great organisation who do so much for the less fortunate.

    I personally would not donate to the St. Vincent de Paul, but that's because I have seen people take advantage of it. the Peter McVery trust are taking donations and are helping to rehouse people this Xmas.

    Women's aid would be good also. Used to always drops a sack of toys Xmas week when I could afford to. Unfortunately not so much now.

    Clothes would also be welcomed as well as selection boxes etc
