The Scrapstore Birmingham joins forces with two new donors

The Scrapstore Birmingham is delighted to announce that we have been collecting materials from two new donors.

Carpet-based resources

A newfound relationship with Victoria Carpets, Birmingham-based designer and manufacturer of woven and tufted carpets, means that we now have a range of carpet-based resources.

Elements such as tiles, yarn, and cartridges are all available at our Scrapstore Headquarters.

An “abundance of choice”

Our second addition to the list of donors emerges from the beautiful town of Leamington Spa in Warwickshire.

Invopak provides wonderful buckets, lids, and other colourful plastic resources, so as you can imagine they slot in seamlessly in our hub full of materials that present a limitless scope for creativity. Josh Mitchell, Manager of The Scrapstore Birmingham said:

“We hope to continue working with both of these well-respected manufacturers in the region and are very grateful for their support.

“Having relationships with these organisations enriches the experience that people get when visiting the Scrapstore, presenting an abundance of choice. We would like to thank them for their contributions and look forward to the prospect of working with them in the future.”

Our extensive range of resources just got even better

The month of April was not just a time for indulging in Easter treats, it provided an opportunity for us to catch up with our West Midlands neighbours Worcestershire Resource Exchange.

Enhancing depth and variety of resources

We swapped resources with our friends at the creative re-use charity, expanding our selection of materials from what is already an extensive range of resources to one that is now even better.

Let’s Play workshops

As a result, we are scheduled to utilise quite a few of the new additions within our workshops and initiatives, such as the astro turf pieces that we acquired.

We thought, “what better place to start than our Let’s Play Containers?”, so keep an eye out for some elaborate resources being utilised.

For more information on our Let’s Play project please contact josh@bpcn.org.uk.
