Charities and groups in the Goole and surrounding area can now access free to hire equipment from 'The Courtyard Community Collection'. 

Thanks to funding through the East Riding Council and support from HEY Smile Foundation, The Courtyard Goole has launched their library of free to hire equipment - The Courtyard Community Collection!

The growing list of items includes a gazebo, tables, chairs, a bingo machine, projector, giant games and PA systems. Using the website, charities can now book the free to hire items for up to seven days and collect them from The Courtyard at Boothferry Road Goole, on Mondays and Thursdays.

Gareth from HEY Smile Foundation said “We are really pleased that The Courtyard Community Collection is live. This has been a collaborative project between East Riding Council’s Public Health and Active Communities Team, HEY Smile Foundation and The Courtyard Goole. 

Charities and community-led groups from the local area now have easy access to the free to hire equipment available through the Smile Vaults system. The creation of the Goole Vault builds on the success of the sites in Bridlington, Driffield and Hull.

 We know that the free equipment has helped hundreds of charities and groups to run community, fundraising, training and awareness events for the causes close to their heart. In the last year the sites have managed over 490 orders and helped save over £110,000 in hire charges. 

I am sure that The Courtyard Community Collection will make a positive impact for local VCSE organisations and enable the, to great thing in their community."

“Both the staff and volunteer team are excited to be able to provide this free to hire equipment to local charities. As a charity we know how much impact this free to use equipment will make to our wider community. We look forward to seeing The Courtyard Community Collection equipment in many local events.”
