Community groups in Kirklees now have more kit to share thanks to Comoodle.
More than 250 individual resources like multisport kits, sensory equipment and electronics were handed over to groups at two giveaway events, held at Dewsbury Arena on the 14th and 15th of March. These items are now available to borrow at comoodle.com, to help local groups deliver worthwhile activities.
One organisation to benefit was Bradley Wood Scout Campsite & Activity Centre, who are now Comoodle custodians of hockey, golf, lacrosse and tag rugby sets. Bradley Wood work with young people within the scouting movement at weekends, but also make their facilities available during the week to schools, colleges and businesses.
Elaine Clough, Assistant County Commissioner for Adventurous Activities, said: ‘There are 11,500 young people involved in scouting in West Yorkshire and Bradley Wood is our county HQ.
‘I think Comoodle is a great idea. Normally we’d be buying this kind of equipment and only using it a few times. For me it’s about accessibility – we want young people to take part in a range of activities to find their niche and Comoodle totally supports that.’
As well signing up new custodians for shareable assets the team took the opportunity to find new community homes for over 140 pieces of furniture, craft activity packs and sets of sports clothing.
