Introducing ‘Borrow It Blackpool’, a project run by the Volunteer Centre, Blackpool, Wyre and Fylde.
Borrow It Blackpool is a community lending library that loans out items (Household, DIY, Gardening or Leisure) for five days to members for a small loan fee.
They’re looking to lend a helping hand to people either impacted by the cost of living or those looking to live more sustainably. Memberships cost £10-a-year and you can sign up on their website today: www.borrowitblackpool.co.uk
Borrow it Blackpool has also recently been successful in acquiring funding from our very own Tenant's Project Fund. A grant of £10,000 will enable Borrow It Blackpool to run a variety of ‘Learn & Loan’ Community Workshops. These workshops will enable people to learn new skills and will cover themes such as DIY, cookery, sewing and decorating.
Look out for more information on these workshops soon!
