Welcome to Children's Scrapstore Bristol
We are a Bristol based children’s charity that is passionate about helping children’s groups deliver cost effective and abundant resources to children.
We are also passionate about art and crafts, outdoor and indoor play and bringing more play and creativity into the home, school and play places, in short, anywhere that play happens.
The amazing thing about a scrapstore is that we collect business waste (we call it scrap), which is safe for re-use and offer it to groups supporting or delivering services to children for a small donation. It means that children get masses to play with, to be creative with and to explore their own processes and development with. It also means that groups delivering services can offer more, do more and stay alive as most are run by people on a shoestring.
In our shop Artrageous, anyone who is a member can get a massive 20% discount on any purchase. We give over £20,000 per year back to members in this way. The shop is open to everyone so anyone who is not a member and paying full price is directly helping children’s services as that’s the only way we can afford to give that discount. Thank you everyone who shops with us!!!
If you are thinking of becoming a member then do please open the membership page and all of our information is there.
We also run the Scrapstore PlayPod project which delivers scrap materials into primary schools for use at lunchtimes. This project has been so successful that it is now being delivered across the country and grows each year to include some 20,000 children at the end of 2012.
