Facebook group for donating/selling/requesting items for schools

Here’s a link for a new Facebook group for those wanting to donate/sell/request equipment for schools. Please do share it with other technicians/teachers/people responsible for equipment across all departments, not just science. And please do share with any companies who you know like to give things away to schools rather than chucking them away. I hope this is useful in helping you to save money (or even make money in some instances) as well as reducing waste to landfill and networking with others. Please do join! :)

Thanks Phil, that is really helpful for clubs and schools!


This is a great idea - I took a look and loads of people advertising some great stuff, including text books as well as equipment.  If you can't find a new home for kit in the UK please consider contacting The LabAid Foundation and seeing if you have anything they can send to equip schools in developing countries http://www.labaid.org/

You can also donate text books to developing countries via Book Aid International https://bookaid.org/ or Books Abroad https://www.booksabroad.org.uk/
