We are a group of Sandringham community organisations that care about the environment, and are looking for ways to combat climate change including taking care of Papatuānuku’s precious resources. Our Repair Cafés are a great fit for our kaupapa, and we aim to run them several times a year. You are welcome to join us for an afternoon as we come together as a community to repair common household items and save them from landfill. Our volunteer repair experts will be on hand to repair your electrical items, clothes, furniture, bicycles and toys, sharpen knives and tools and more. You can support this kaupapa by volunteering to be a repairer, helping run the event (no special skills required), or buying some baking and a cuppa on the day.
We have a local network of Repair Cafés within our local area, and plan to hold events across different venues, including Roskill South Oasis Hub and Communities Feeding Communities in Puketāpapa Mt Roskill.
