“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” — Winston Churchill
Our fantastic “Social Enterprise” volunteers design, create and upcycle our donated resources into craft packs, knitted video tape bags, decoupaged chairs and telephone table lamps to name but a few. The weekly sewing group produce unique doorstops, bags and knitted cakes to help our charity raise more funds
Now Here’s A Challenge!
60 Different Things To Celebrate Your Sixtieth .
This was Allan Bond’s personal challenge for his significant birthday. So we threw down the gauntlet and invited Allan to join us for a days volunteering here at the Scrapstore. It’s safe to say he had an enjoyable day travelling around the county in our van, collecting all sorts of amazing supplies from the businesses around Wiltshire that support us!!
“This was an unusual challenge but I took up the invitation and as they say ran with it.”
“I would definitely recommend volunteering, I might even go back next month”.
Here’s a snapshot of Allan’s day – we are pleased to say he kept smiling! A big thank-you from us.
Meet some of our talented volunteers.
Remember, you don’t need to have a specific skill to volunteer and be useful at the Scrapstore, we really appreciate your time.
We currently have over 70 people volunteering on a regular basis – we even have companies donating a day of their time with employees taking on tasks as a group “team building” activity .

I started volunteering in Barty’s (our Lacock shop) now I make Smart Cut craft packs that I used to sell. I’m also a Governor at a local primary school.
I volunteer in the warehouse, I drive the van and I also like upcycling quirky decoupage objects.
I make waistcoats & knitted animals all from donated materials which we then sell in Barty’s. I’m also the Charity Trustee.
Jayne also designs & produces Craft Packs for adults.
