Trash is turned into treasure

Trash is turned into treasure

They say that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure – and that certainly is the case at our Reading branch, where scrap is being donated monthly to Reading Play Scrapstore.

Part of Readding Borough Council, the Scrapstore is a non-profit organisation that offers donated play, arts and crafts, and educational resources to local schools and organisations.

“The sort of things we have given are old POS materials after changeover – card goes a long way – FRV packaging and a few bits from Christmas including Partners aprons”, explained DM Retail Support Laura Shepherd.  “We can usually fill the Scrapstore van with a monthly donation!”.

The aprons have been especially popular, and Melanie O’Hare, from the Scrapstore is thrilled with the donations.
