Donating unwanted items to Llamau

We are very grateful for the generosity of all our supporters both during the pandemic and beyond. We understand that some of you may want to support us with donations of things for the people we support, and we have created the following lists to give you some guides about what donations are most useful.

There are some items that we simply won’t be able to accept at the moment, because of the logistics involved in collecting and distributing them, a lack of storage space and based on what things are most useful to the people we support.
