I've got half a pack of Ws nappies left over that she doesn't use anymore.
None of my friends children fit in a size 5 anymore to give them to.
theres probably about 30 nappies but it's an opened pack.
my local tesco has a food bank collection bin for a local charity that people put tins, packets etc in. Are these literally just for food? nappies are expensive so if a family was struggling I'm guessing they would be finding it just as hard to afford nappies. But would they not take them as the pack is open?
i hate them to go to waste so don't want to just throw them out

Have you a local children's centre at all? They'll gladly take them x

Or a Womans refuge x

I thought women's refuge locations are secret so the people they are seeking refuge from can't find them? How would I find out if there is one near me?
My local children's centres are both closed for the school holidays .
As a last resort I'll drop them off at Ws nursery in the morning, I would just rather give them to someone who needed then than the people I pay money to already!!

What about offering them for free on Gumtree or if your area has a freegle or freecycle distribution list?

Our local onestop shop actually has a collection point for a food bank and one of the suggested items is nappies. Don't know if they would be funny because the packet is open.

I think I'm going to tape the pack up, put it in the food bank bin, and then it's up to them if they want them or not

That sounds a good idea jellytot

With women's refuges, they usually have a local website and contact details. I emailed my local branch when I donated an old buggy, and they sent me to a house but it wasn't one where the women were staying - more of a hub, iyswim.
