Exciting new working partnership

It is a long time since I have actually got around to posting on the blog of our scrapstore page but  I want the world to know how excited I am about this.  We have been exploring a working partnership with a local charity called Orchard Vale Trust who work locally with people with learning disabilities.  From the end of February they will be coming to YEAST Scrapstore every Friday and every other Wednesday not just to make things but to help with the day to day running of the scrapstore.  We are so excited to be welcoming the staff and clients of Orchard Vale Trust and look forward to seeing where this partnership may lead in the future.
