Orpington Repair Café
Last year I pursued the idea of setting up a Repair Café for Orpington. Repair Cafés are a worldwide network of community ventures aimed at repairing items that would normally be seen as uneconomical to repair professionally. They are staffed by volunteers repairers and other volunteers and also provide a community café/meeting place. I have formed a small group of trustees and we are registered as a small charity but we have had several small setbacks which have delayed a launch date. One of the issues we have is funding. We hope that once established we will be self-funding. However we need some funds in order to obtain insurance which is vital before we launch. I have set up a Go Fund Me page to receive donations and it would be great if members of the church community were able to help to get this project underway.The link ishttps://gofund.me/f06e2bb3There is also more information about repair cafés on their websitewww.repaircafe.orgAny small donations would be appreciated. Many Thanks Rev Michael
