Support Our Work

You can support our work in a variety of ways: donate through paypal or online when you shop as well as donating materials for us to reuse and recycle. You could also help in person through becoming a volunteer or trustee and buying crafts from us at local fairs and events.

Your donation could help pay for some workshop materials, to rent a community space for our workshops, to reimburse volunteer expenses or pay for a local market stall pitch fee so members can showcase and sell what they have made in workshops.

Donating materials, which we can recycle and reuse creatively, helps to keep our workshops sustainable and helps the environment too. We can currently make use of garden tools, wooden pallets and seeds at the allotment, candle wax which we can melt down for candle making and any craft materials you may have such as beads, card making materials, buttons and paint. Please contact us to arrange a time to bring any materials to one of our workshops at Castle Street Methodist Church.

Earning donations for us when you shop online is simple and free. The UK’s biggest charity shopping fundraising site, easyfundraising, turns your everyday online shopping into free donations for Make, Do and Mend.

Just start your online shopping first at easyfundraising, then shop as normal. The price of the item you want to buy does not change, but using the easyfundraising website means we collect a donation from the retailer as part of your purchase! If you think you might forget to shop each time via easyfundraising then the Donation Reminder will help you by reminding you that your purchases are eligible for a donation when you are browsing different retailer websites.
