Help expand low cost education, play and creative activities across Devon.

Over the last 30 years the Scrapstore in Exeter has been providing a wealth of arts and crafts materials to families, community organisations, schools, playgroups and artists across Devon. Now entering its fourth year as a charity the Scrapstore is looking to the future.

The Scrapstore collects surplus materials and offcuts from manufacturers that might otherwise go to landfill and makes them available for education, creative activities and play. From its Belmont Park site the Scrapstore also provides a shop selling new arts and crafts materials as well as running creative workshops and hiring equipment.

Members pay an annual fee and pay as they go for materials.

The Scrapstore is investigating the possibility of rebuilding or refurbishing their 75 year-old hut and possibly providing new services. To obtain funding support to do this they need to have a clear understanding of what potential members might like to see.They are doing this by wanting their members and non members to fill out a survey!

They are offering everyone who completes this survey the chance to be entered into a prize draw to win a lovely gift kindly donated by Lush cosmetics. To be entered for the prize draw you will need to give them a contact email.
