PramDepot is an arts-led recycling project that provides high quality recycled baby clothes and equipment to new mums who receive support through Birth Companions Helen Bamber Happy Baby Group and 20 other organisations in and around London.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT TAKE SELF REFERRALS, SO PLEASE DO NOT SEND MUMS TO US DIRECTLY AS WE ARE NOT SET UP FOR THEM TO VISIT.
We are currently closed again for Donations till Mid March 2019. We are now moving at the end of February, and need to reduce our stock.
If anyone knows a removal firm who would like to help please get in touch at email@example.com
Over the Autumn of 2018 we ran a festival called Spotlight on Asylum www.spotlightonasylum.com and an Online Art Auction which included artists including Tracy Emin, Rachel Whiteread, Antony Gormley, Mark Wallinger, Alison Wilding and David Batchelor. See the results at spotlightonasylum.com/angel-auctions
Through the festival and art auction we raised just over £30,000. This money will pay for our storage and processing costs for the next 18 months. We would like to say a massive thank you to all the artists, local people, politicians, friends, organisations and especially the women that we support who took Part in the Project.
