We started our Repair Café 5 years ago because we weren’t happy with how hard and expensive it is to fix items resulting in people throwing them out just to replace with a cheaper item. All of our volunteers have been on our journey from the beginning.
We have 3 electricians, 2 general repair guys, 3 sewers and a jeweller. Due to the small size of our community house we have connected with a local Church to now hold Repair Café's there, and we plan to do them more frequently than we have in the past.
Our volunteers have fixed shoes, irons, toasters, chairs, necklaces and so much more.
