Opportunity Shop

Opportunity Shop

The Friends of WIRF Volunteers help run the Foundation's Opportunity Shop at King Edward Memorial Hospital. It's a great place to grab a quality bargain or donate your nearly new baby and maternity items. Our Op Shop is located on the lower ground floor of the hospital near to the cashier.

Our Op Shop accepts pre-loved women's and babies clothing into a donation bin located outside our the Op Shop. All donated, pre-loved items go a long way toward helping the patients of our hospital source much needed clothing for themselves and their babies, and assist WIRF to conduct essential research studies into women and infants health.

Donation guidelines:

*Items must be free of stains, tears and pilling, and should be washed and ironed.

*Acceptable donations include baby and kids clothing (from premmies to kids size 4), women’s wear (for new and expectant mums), prams, port-a-cots, baby blankets, toys and books.

*We regret we are unable to accept electronic items.
