Active Minds scheme

Do you live locally and have unwanted jigsaws, board games or craft items that you are happy to donate to the local community?

Perhaps you've had a clear out since lockdown began and have some of these items just lying around taking up space?

Your donations could help people stay busy and keep their minds active as lockdown continues.

Our Community Hub has a team of volunteers who can collect, sanitise and then redistribute these items to people in need.

Items you can donate

Please only donate items that are complete, undamaged, clean and in good condition – things you would be happy to receive yourself. 

We can only accept small items – if it doesn’t fit in a regular carrier bag then it is too big. 

We need items for adults and children (no toys please).

Items needed include:

  • Jigsaws
  • Board games
  • Small home craft items such as crochet kits
