Do I have to pay to borrow?
Yes, there is a small fee for borrowing. The fee can be paid with money, time or something else. Everyone will be able to borrow.
What can I donate?
Anything useful and in good condition eg; garden tools, camping equipment, kitchen equipment, toys and games etc
How can I help?
We need your donated items – please bring us good quality items that you no longer need. We'd also love to get donations of brand new items so let us know if you work for a business that would like to help us get off the ground! etc
What about insurance and safety?
Before borrowing any items, we'll show you how to use each item and ask you to sign a waiver form to show that you're taking responsibility for using it safely. We'll inspect and PAT test electrical items before they are loaned out.
