Weʼve raised £670 to “Twickenham Repair Cafe”. Volunteers will repair people’s household items and share their skills. We are raising money to buy tools.
- Funded on Monday, 16th May 2022
Don't have time to donate right now?
Twickenham Repair Cafe tackles the current culture of throwing away rather than repairing. Vast amounts of stuff gets thrown away and many people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves. Changing mindsets can kindle people’s enthusiasm for a more sustainable society and show people how much fun repairing can be.
Our talented team of volunteers will be covering repairs to: textiles, household and garden electrical, mechanical, ceramics, radios and will have a plant hospital, glueing things station and a “Kids take it apart” table.
Good for people and the planet!

Just like to say a huge thanks to all you generous supporters.We had our first event on Saturday and it was such a success, great fun and a wonderful community atmosphere. The list of items that arrived was extraordinary. We spend your money on: bike stand, tools, table protectors, special solder mats, glues, accessories etc and a WIX account for building the website, my current project. (They do say that you have to get outside your comfort zone each day!) Thanks again, it is 3rd Sat of each month please come along. best. Colin
