Over the last seven years our From a Mother to Another recycling initiative has prevented over 30 tonnes of baby and children’s clothing from going to waste by facilitating the delivery of generously donated parcels to families in need in the UK and Ireland.
Nearly a third of the UK’s clothing ends up in landfill;
that’s 350,000 tonnes a year and we want to do something about it!

Over the past year, our initiative has supported more families facing the hardships of the pandemic than ever before. We generally collect for a few weeks in the run up to Mother’s Day, but due to the devasting effects of the pandemic, the demand for our packs has grown and we will be running our initiative throughout 2021 to boost support for baby banks and charities during their toughest months. Our partner charities have witnessed unprecedented demand for emergency clothing, so please sort through your child’s unwanted or outgrown clothing and drop off your donations at your local JoJo store.
We have made it as safe as possible for you to donate. Please follow the instructions below.
We can only accept pre-sorted items which comply with these rules.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Sort through your little worn and good quality pre-loved clothing, making up lovely outfits by size, sex and season up to aged 0-6 years. All brands are accepted and outfits should contain three to four items – they do not need to be full outfits, for instance you might want to put a coat with hat, gloves and tights or shorts with a top, socks and hat or maybe a couple of sleepsuits with some baby socks.
Our partner charities are in desperate need of older children’s clothing in size 2-6 years so anything in this size (even if not co-ordinating) would be much appreciated.
Place each complete outfit in a clear bag and label with the sex, size and season.
It really helps our partner charities to pick up the right FAMTA pack if the bags are labelled with the size, if they are suitable for boy, girl or unisex and for winter or summer seasons.
Please ensure the bag is see through and clearly labelled. You could recycle a clear garment bag form a JoJo delivery or ask for some spare bags in store.
Deliver to a JoJo store at a time that works for you. Find your nearest store and check opening times HERE. Please do not make large donations to our stores, some of them have no storage. If you have a larger group donation please arrange to deliver directly to our Warehouse in Newport.
As a thank you for taking the time to sort through your little one’s clothes to make up a gift pack for someone in need, we will give you a £5 voucher* when you pop into store.
1. The £5 voucher is valid until 31st August 2021.
2. It is only valid in store, not online or with telephone/in store mail orders.
3. Only one voucher per customer.
4. The £35 minimum spend must be on full price items and is not valid with sale items, multibuys or gift cards. The voucher cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
5. There is no cash or product alternative.
We will check, pack into gorgeous gift bags and deliver your generous donations to our partner charities; Baby Basics & Little Village baby banks and Trussell Trust food banks amongst some smaller charities helping across the UK and Ireland.
Please take the time to de-stash and donate generously, there is far more demand for our amazing FAMTA gift packs than we can supply!
Out of sensitivity to the diverse recipients please do not include any clothing with Mummy or Daddy, camouflage/army or religious prints or references on.
This initiative is part of our B Corp ethos, putting people and the planet before profit.
