So Spring has finally sprung. Our warehouse has seen some amazing products through its doors in recent weeks, thanks to a number of bumper donations. Do have a look through our catalogue and get inspired for great activities for the sunny months ahead!

We’re proud that Clarence House has commissioned a film about In Kind Direct’s work as part of our founder HRH The Prince of Wales’ 70th Birthday celebrations. Do take a few minutes to watch and see the incredible and uplifting impact CCLASP and Emmaus Glasgow make in their communities. 

The GDPR deadline is looming so we've provided some useful links below to get clued up on what you need to do to ensure you're keeping on the right side of the law. 

Thank you for reading and enjoy the Spring sunshine.

Star Photo

One of the highlights of our job is receiving photos of how you've used In Kind Direct products and who receives them. When we're sat in our London office, processing orders and coordinating delivery trucks, it's always nice to be reminded of what impact our work is making. 

Above is our favourite photo of the quarter- sent by the lovely people at BEATS charity. Thanks for sending! For tips on how to take the perfect photo, check out our Photo Guide today.

Products we love

This quarter we've received some incredible donations of LEGO products. We've absolutely loved receiving your photos and videos of children and adults using these toys in therapy classes,  between hospital treatments, at LEGO clubs and during rainy day activities. 

If you haven't yet ordered any LEGO, and want to do so, check out our catalogue pages today.
