The Definitive List of Sharing Sites..?

When I decided to try and compile a list of freecycling sites, I inevitably turned to the good people out there in social media land for their recommendations and ideas, and I was posted links to lots of sites.

But then, the lovely Cat from Freegle, posted me a link to a list they have created of sites that encourage the sharing of items, skills, and lots of other things, that really is WAYYYYY more comprehensive than anything I was attempting to put together, and she very kindly said that I could share it with you lot too!


So, here it is, the hopefully, just might possibly be, definitive list of lovely sharing sites in the UK….
