On Tuesday 20 September, Christchurch Repair Riverlution held their monthly repair café at the Richmond Community Center. The wonderful volunteers were Alan Liefting, Aidas Janulis, Thomas Gilchrist, Just-Be Inga, Séku Skandan, Lila Laird, Lisa Holmes, Vincent Rade, Morgane Forde-Honoré, Felix Harrison, Hayley Johnson and Darcy Carter.
28 items were successfully repaired, 8 are still to be repaired and 3 were not repairable. Not bad for 2 hours of work!
Cathy Allden and Hayley Guglietta who are from the Richmond Community Garden made some delicious veggie soup and Lila made cake and biscuits and hot drinks were available so well fed!
