WRAP has stated the following categories are of particular interest:

* DIY and home improvement (power tools and decorating materials)
* household and personal aerosols

* raw, cooked and processed meats
* fresh produce

Closing date is January 31 2007 or March 28 2007 where additional time is required to prepare proposals and secure commitment from project partners. Surgery dates available in January and March.
