The Repair Cafe continues to donate its proceeds to local good causes. Their Salisbury Hospital Staff project has now raised £8000 and some much needed money has also been donated to the Lover Pre-school.
The latest Repairer of the Month is John Ball, who has re-built a collapsed Bird Box and renovated a rusty, rotten garden table - all of this using old timber and fittings to keep costs to a minimum, and demonstrating that re-cycling is not only good for the planet, but can also achieve excellent results.
Now that the Cafe is taking place back at the Hall, they are able to undertake re-cycling again and have welcomed Brendan, who has joined them, and at present is working through a back-log of re-cycling. Further good news is that Currys in Salisbury have agreed to work with the team on their re-cycling programme and so they will shortly be starting their “Convoy to Currys” with all their Beyond Reasonable Repair (BRR) items broken down into elements.
