Business Name Borrow Don't Buy
What We Do Borrow Don’t Buy is a Library of Things based in Plymouth. A Library of Things is a place where you can borrow items that you need to use, but might not need to own. We have a diverse inventory with items from camping equipment to power tools, DIY tools and craft equipment. The idea behind a Library of Things is to help our members save money, reduce clutter and reduce our carbon footprint while strengthening our community. Members are able to access equipment that might be too expensive otherwise. To counteract our throwaway culture we also run a bi-monthly free Repair Cafe, where we help our attendees improve the skills and confidence they need to fix their broken items. By sharing more items within our community we increase our resilience and wellbeing. Our mission is for everyone to have access to the stuff they need, without it costing the earth. We have loads of resources, knowledge, and skills in Plymouth, we just need to share them more. A Library of Things a place to bring people together and encourage everyone to share more.

What We Do Red Velvet Cinema is a small community cinema for older people particularly those who are lonely and socially isolated. After screening a classic film there is plenty of time for tea & cake and talking about people's memories of the film, the actors and the time in which it was set. Those that come believe they are coming to watch a film but really it's about conversation and companionship. And discussing the films enables people to avoid talking about 'sensitive' subjects which can trigger unwelcome feelings, such as, families, health and belonging. Red Velvet Cinema has definitely brought people together and helped them to feel connected.
