Welcome to With A Little Love

About

‘With a little love’ is a project of The Jubilee Trust registered charity no: 1077936. I am a full-time mum living in Chinnor. I was living in Australia when my first children – twins – were born, and I was overwhelmed by the cost of new baby clothes – particularly as they were often outgrown in a matter of weeks. I depended on hand-me-downs from friends, and in turn, passed them on to other friends as they were outgrown. This was a great system, but when I moved to New Zealand I suddenly found myself in a completely new city with no friends or family, and no clothes suited to the sudden climate change. Aware of my predicament, a stranger from the local twins club promptly arrived on my doorstep with a huge box full of clothes. ‘With a little love’ was born out of the incredible impact of that small gesture. Since returning to the UK, I have seen many friends pass baby clothes to each other as needed – but I have also seen this system fail, when someone happens to be the first to have a girl, or happens to have a baby just after everyone has already donated their clothes elsewhere. I am hoping that WALL will be able to bridge that gap, and serve as a readily accessible ‘clothes store’ for any mums that need it....

How to Donate

If you have any clothes that you would be willing to donate, then please drop me a message via the contact form or through the ‘With a little love’ Facebook page here, and I will be happy to arrange a time to drop by and take them off your hands. I will gladly accept anything that you’re willing to pass on – don’t worry about washing or sorting, I can take care of all of that!  Crumpled bundles in a dustbin bag are perfectly acceptable… 🙂 Any clothes that are a bit too well-worn to make it into my ‘stock’ will all be donated to needy causes – nothing will be thrown away. Although my running costs are very low, I do occasionally need to replace stained clothing items, top-up clothes of a particular size and buy more storage boxes.  I am therefore hugely grateful to anyone who feels that they would like to support me with a small financial contribution – please contact me for details.  I will gladly keep you apprised of where your money has been spent, and you can rest assured that all donations received are accounted for – ‘With a little love’ is a project of The Jubilee Trust, registered charity no: 1077936.  ...

How it Works

‘With a little love’ is a completely free baby clothing ‘lending library’ based in Chinnor, Oxfordshire.  Our London branch can be contacted at:  www.facebook.com/withalittleloveLondon I have no acceptance criteria – I am happy to lend bundles of clothing to any local mums/dads/carers who would like to borrow them.   At the moment, I have clothes for boys and girls, in sizes newborn, 0-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-9 months, 9-12 months and 12-18 months – enough to see your baby through their first year.  I also have sleeping bags, coats and snowsuits.   Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are interested in using this service – at the moment, I am running well under-capacity, and have boxfuls of clothing ready to lend. I am happy to put together a bundle of clothes and bring it to you – alternatively, you’re welcome to drop in, have a look, and put together your own bundle of clothing items.   I will not ask for any form of payment or deposit.  ‘With a little love’ runs on trust and goodwill, and will hopefully remain that way for the forseeable future.   All ‘With a little love’ clothes will be clearly marked with a red heart on the label. All ‘With a little love’ clothes are currently stored in brand new storage boxes, in a smoke-free pet-free home. All ‘With a little love’ clothes are in really good condition – most of them have hardly been worn!  Any well-worn items are removed from stock and donated to clothing banks or hostels. If the clothes become stained, just let me know so that I can replace them.  There is obviously no charge for such things – with three young children, I am not naive enough to expect clothes to remain spotless! If you become particularly sentimentally attached to some of the clothes, you will probably be welcome to keep them, on the assumption that you might be able to donate a few other clothing items that you may have acquired along the way – just chat to me about it when you’re picking up your...
