As part of Uppertunity's groups, we aim to offer a range of materials to stimulate growth. We welcome any materials to aid this, such as: paint, fabric, pencils, paper, cooking utensils, garden equipment, sewing equipment and any other art supplies.
Uppertunity is also grateful for any monetary donations, which will be used for events and individual development.
We need unwanted clothes, including jeans, ties, hats and unworn shoes to use in our upcycling projects. These projects help us reduce the impact of the fashion industry by preventing clothes going to landfill, and provide an opportunity for our members to learn clothing repair and recycling skills.
Any other fabrics such as curtains, cushion covers, clean bedspreads are also welcome!
In addition to clothing we also upcycle furniture to prevent it being sent to landfill. We take old furniture and give it a new lease of life!
Old timber, gardening supplies, masonry paint, wood varnish and decorating materials can all be used in our upcycling projects.
