“ I was so fortunate to come St Leonards from London just before lockdown and got to volunteer for CPP and meet the amazing Pen. What can I say about this brilliant project and woman, well I guess I never left, that says it all”
I have been involved with CPP for quite a while now. I love coming to the weekly workshops and catching up with everyone. I do make many of the survival items at home in my own time each week, I must enjoy ironing! I am also on the admin for our fb groups to help out where I can, it’s fantastic.
We have been volunteering for CPP and the big weave with my twin since it first started. We love helping and supporting our local community, and are so proud that it is now globally recognised. We help out every week and love the community spirit
“I love helping with such a worth while project, and with a great bunch of people!”
Hi. I had all ways wanted to help the poor people roughing it on the streets, especially in the winter, so when I found Pen had started the CPP, I was interested and I'm so glad that I'm doing something useful for them, it's very therapeutic.
I look forward to my Sunday mornings with the CPP. I've always recycled but to give crisp packets a new life whilst helping our fellow beings is awesome.
I feel proud to be involved in such a worthwhile project. The need unfortunately seems to be getting greater.
All the people volunteering are such lovely human beings, full of compassion and fun. Coming into The Art Shack is always a joy.
CPP is such an amazing project and I feel privileged to be able to contribute and work alongside lovely people, recycling crisp packets into useful items for those who need them.
“ It's a real privilege to be involved in such a worthwhile project with such wonderful people making a real difference. “
