Cake sale planned

A cake sale will raise money for bus fares for volunteers at the Crow Recycling Scrapstore opening on November 30.

Occasionally people come to visit keen to volunteer but struggling to find the bus fares to reach us. Funding from charitable trusts for bus fares is hard to find. So we’re having a cake sale to kick start our volunteer bus fare fund.

Volunteers sort and shred waste paper along with sorting, crushing and baling used drinks cans to keep Crow up and running. Most of our volunteers are disabled.

The Scrapstore, normally only open weekdays, will be open on Saturday November 30 from 10am to 2pm. Visit for ideas on how to to put the wow factor in Christmas without depleting the planet’s resources.

There will be gift wrap, card making materials and decorations on sale at bargain prices all donated for reuse.

The Scrapstore is a member only shop with annual membership at £10.

Crow Recycling is a registered charity set up in 1985 to provide work placements for disabled people.
