Repair Cafe update
Since the Repair Cafe started supporting the appeal for Salisbury Hospital, it has raised over £5000. Every broken item becomes a challenge - and they are very proud of their 93% success rate in fixing and repairing items that would otherwise be thrown away. They have worked on cleaning and upgrading laptops which will go to the Trafalgar School for use by those in need of IT equipment. They have also been able to give some financial assistance to Redlynch Pre-school. Star Repairer of the month award goes to Roy Powell, who has been revitalising a toy doll’s shop, which has been donated, and will be used for further fundraising. Amongst the range of diverse current projects are an antique rocking horse, a pitch fork, a marble jewel case, a typewriter, an electric generator……..
They are open every Wednesday & Friday morning for you to simply drop off your broken item, leaving your name & details, so that you can be contacted when your item is ready for collection. All you will be asked to pay is for material costs and a donation to our Local Projects. Government Covid Guidelines are adhered to.
