663 individual members/member groups attracted to use the Scrapstore's materials
650 days of volunteering donated (regular volunteers, corporate groups, one-off volunteers)
Hazelfest #2 run attracting around 350 people and including 30 local artists/community groups
100 separate murals painted outside the Scrapstore by the local community
