What We Need

We are interested in any materials or items that can be used in an art, craft, DIY, reclamation or play context. So long as all materials are clean, safe and suitable all it takes is a call to confirm and we are more than capable of taking large quantities off your hands €“ even clearing whole offices and stockpiles!

The more colourful and unusual the better, particularly with regard to paper, fabrics and plastics. If you can deliver, great! If not, call and we will arrange a convenient collection. Do something amazing today and get in touch. 


We are open to any member of the general public and support schools, community groups, child-minders, nurseries, colleges, students, youth groups, after-school clubs, crafters, art and drama groups, to name only a few. Our aim is to provide access for all to low cost creative materials, inspiration and resources. Whoever you are there will be a SCRAPSTORE for you.




    At SCRAPSTORE we aim for financial self-sustainability and run our projects for the most part as if they were a business. There are however unavoidable financial costs to our organisation that despite careful monitoring do for the moment still need to be met.

    SCRAPSTORE are faced by the costs of investing into new services necessary for self-sustainability. Also relying upon funding for running the volunteers van and its expenses as well as the costs of bills and occupation for our warehouse space.

    Year on year we make improvements on our financial sustainability increasing by 10% annually for the last 5 years. Until that point of complete self-funding is reached we rely on income from annual memberships, donations and grants to continue serving our community and preserving the environment.
