We Supply Community Groups & Organisations

We were delighted to supply a local Scout group with free art and craft materials from our surplus donated stock dedicated to community groups - the Scout Leader is a member of our Facebook group and later visited our shop in The Ridings, Wakefield to choose and collect the goodies.

Our Community Engagement Manager follows up with supported groups, and we receive some lovely feedback:

“We have used the materials donated to us from Crafting4Good to help with completing badge work at different times of the able to support our young people to develop their creative side or engage with the virtual aspect of scouting”
- Normanton Scouts, Wakefield

Our surplus 'Community Stash’ can include new and/or used donated art and craft supplies which are 'lightly used and still have life in them' such as coloured pencils, crayons, glue and paintbrushes. We also have sheets of quality art paper from Pink Pig, a local manufacturer of sketchbooks who send us their perfectly usable seconds and offcuts.

From care homes to churches, craft groups to community centres, if you are a Community Leader and would like to see if we have suitable free supplies available, please get in touch - we will be delighted to support you in giving donated art and craft materials a new life (and avoiding landfill)

*Donations sent to us should always be "lightly used and still have life in them" so that others may enjoy and use them for a length of time e.g. pens and markers preferably tested and working, pencils sharpened if possible to clean up the wooden points and save us a job, bottles of glue or paint at least half-full, paints and watercolours still mostly usable etc. If in doubt please ask.
