For creativity, learning, design and play

We promote the re-use of resources...

...for environmental and community benefit. As a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers, we take a wide range of donated clean waste materials from businesses with a corporate social responsibility.

For an economical annual subscription fee, we make inspiring and useful materials accessible for our members (organisations and individuals).


We support them to take and use the materials for:

• educational, artistic, play, creative, social or therapeutic activities,
• making items that may be sold solely for charitable benefit.


There is no fixed restriction on how often or how many materials members can take, but some items may be restricted from time to time to be fair to all members.


We do not supply individuals or companies who would use the materials directly to make products that are then sold for commercial gain.


Opening Times

Tuesdays 11.30am to 6.00pm
Thursdays 11:00am to 5:00pm

We are open over all school holidays.


We are always seeking new members from the education, community and charity sectors.  Are you a school, a nursery, a theatre or therapeutic or community group?  Maybe you are a student or family?


If you fit our membership criteria, for an annual fee, you can visit us to collect materials as many times as you like within the year.

Could you help us out?


We are currently looking for more volunteers with practical, creative and/or organisational skills to join our current team.

See our website’s ‘work with us’ page for more details about how you could help.



Membership income does not fully cover our expenses, we rely on additional donations/grants. Donations are gratefully received at any time.
