Alton Community Share are having a clear out to make space for new donations. Having always been powered by the generosity of the local community, now it’s only right that something is given back too.

On Saturday 22nd May Alton Community Share (ACS) are opening their doors for everyone to help themselves. ACS invite local schools, pre-schools, care homes, charities and anyone who would like to come to St Lawrence Parish Centre from 10.00-12.00 and takeaway whatever they like, books, toys, games and jigsaws. ACS need to free up space for new donations to refresh our stocks.

ACS have been open for nearly a year and have done our best to support local families to find nearly-new toys, games and jigsaws, to help keep busy throughout the pandemic. They are planning ‘Saturday Morning Takeaway’ as a stock clearance to make way for new donations. ACS need to evolve to keep their stock fresh and interesting to attract new visitors.

Do you know someone who runs an after school club, or a holiday club. Perhaps you organise a day care centre and would like some jigsaws. Does your local school need some more reading books? ACS are inviting everyone to come and take their share.

The mission of ACS has always been to help people keep busy at home, save money by not needing to buy new, and reduce waste by re-using things which still have plenty of life left in them. They are keen to continue providing a lending library to encourage families to think about their consumption and make it easy to re-use ‘stuff’.
