Volunteering with the Scrapstore

Find something you love to do

There’s a very happy atmosphere in the store and always something to be done. Some people prefer to be ‘back of house’ unloading and sorting ‘scrap just in,’ while others enjoy serving customers, taking photos of the scrap for the website, or helping out with the shop.


The Autumn Pumpkin Festival, Southampton Play Day and Alresford Music Festival are just a few of the events at which we’ve run craft sessions. Volunteer with us and you could help run these fun days out.
