The Munch Box proceeds, and other collections have been amazing again over the last quarter and we have donated £298 towards the Australian Fire Disaster Fund, Cancer Research & Amicii Dogs, Romania.  The Calmzone will be receiving the next donation, in support of suicide awareness.




We are working in partnership with Terracycle to help reduce the carbon footprint and encourage recycling.  You may have seen the collection points dotted around the centre.  You can help us in a few ways.

Bring in your empty crisp packets (not restricted to Walkers)

Flatten the packet, don't screw it up

We are always looking for cardboard boxes up to 65 x 65 x 50" to post onwards.
