Wot-Ever Scrapstore, situated in a two-storey warehouse unit in Welwyn Garden City, opened in September 2004. The purpose of this project was to create opportunities for more volunteers and to provide additional training in warehouse skills.
The unit additionally provides office accommodation, a meeting room and workshop for training and furniture restoration.
Wot-Ever takes clean, safe waste from local industries and supplies Schools, nursery groups, scout/guide groups, childminders and member of the public with materials for Art/Craft and Science projects.
A lot of work went into liaising with local industries to obtain suitable waste and in raising the awareness of members of the public, the 602 schools in Hertfordshire and other groups that require art/craft material.
Wot-Ever contacted Chris and Shelia at Dor-2-Dor and they decided The Connect Club Charity would be ‘their charity’. Dor-2-Dor posted 10,000 leaflets through doors which provided The Charity with many more donations, new volunteers and raised awareness. Many thanks to Dor-2-Dor.
All items donated to Wot-Ever would have gone to landfill sites.
