Totcycle is a baby and toddler goods exchange, providing good quality second hand baby and toddler clothes, toys and larger items such as cots and pushchairs to families who need them. This service is open to all- we do not operate a means testing policy.
We hold a large Totcycle event on the first Wednesday of every month at Christ Church, Wallis Avenue, Parkwood. We also operate Totcycle @ The Hub on a Friday during term-time (or by appointment at other times), providing one-to-one access to our baby and toddler equipment. Check out the short video below, showing Totcycle in action, and the impact this is having on mums in Park Wood.
Please note that due to space/logistical considerations we can only accept donations of cots, cotbeds or toddler beds if we have a family in need of one at the time- we cannot store them.
We currently have plenty of baby clothing but would be grateful for donations of toddler clothing (1-5 years). We are also always happy to have donations of good quality, working order toys, double pushchairs/prams, and stairgates.
We are unable to accept electrical items.
All donations of car seats need to be accompanied by a car seat donation form (click to download).
Many, many thanks for all the kind and generous donations, which are a real blessing to local families.
Please do check this page regularly for details of items that we need. If you would like to donate to totcycle, or have a particular need that we might be able to help you with, please do contact us.
Items Currently Needed
Donations can be brought to our Gillingham Hub on Mondays during term-time, 10am-2pm (11 the Vineries, Gillingham, ME7 2AD), to our Park Wood office on Wednesday afternoons 12-2pm (round the back of Christ Church, Wrangleden Road, ME15 9JW), or to our Maidstone town centre Hub on Fridays during term-time, 10am-2pm (URC Hall, Fremlin Walk between Pandora and Clintons). We regret that as we are a small team, and Totcycle is only a small part of what we do, we may not be able to accept donations outside of these times.
Team PP would like to say a huge thank you to Rev Arthur Houston and the PCC and congregation of Christ Church, Park Wood, for partnering with us and providing us with office and storage space.
