SCRAPBOX members are very imaginative in their upcycling of our resources so don’t dismiss any item you may have but are unsure of the creative value, as someone will more than likely come up with an exciting use for it! Our organisation members like schools and community artists particularly like identical items in quantity for class use or workshops.

ITEMS WE SADLY CANNOT ACCEPT: Electrical items, clothing other than fancy dress or theatrical costume, household paints/stains/varnishes.

Thank you so much for considering donating your unwanted items to our Charity.
