Kirklees community groups have bagged unclaimed kit following a storage hunt by the Comoodle team.
Comoodle has been working in partnership with our colleagues in Estates Management, to identify potential spaces across the district and make them available to community groups to support their activities. As part of that process we were asked to dispose of some abandoned items that were left in an old garage on a council site and we were able to quickly find new homes for these resources.
Café 100, a Holmfirth-based project which provides a safe space and activities for young people, were delighted to get 300 food trays which they used for their community barbecue while another 600 trays were passed to Ruddi’s Retreat and Friends of Norman Park.
Meanwhile, Platform 1 in Huddersfield have received equipment including a bench saw, compressor and petrol strimmers as well as timber. Platform 1 provides activities to aid men’s mental health and these assets will enable them to develop new projects.
Duggs Carre, Comoodle Programme Lead, said “Passing this kit to the groups directly has reminded me what a big difference even the smallest of offers can make. I’m pleased that we have found another potential source of kit that will help group to do great work in the community.
Sharing, avoiding waste and reusing and recycling are all key to the Comoodle ethos so we are very happy with this outcome.”
