We are a 'good cause' beneficiary of the new East Hants Community Lottery PLEASE support us by playing, we get 50p from every £1 AND you can win Prizes. We are already receiving funds as a result of your generosity and are consistently the 'most supported' of the 24 Good Causes in East Hampshire that the Lottery currently lists.
Please note that we are primarily a social group, we take on occasional repair or refurbishment tasks to support members of the local community.
We can only take on jobs where one or more members has both the skill, and the time and good will to do so.
If we take on a task we will perform it to the best of our abilities but with no guarantees and we hope that you will be very satisfied with the results.
For this we would ask that if at all possible, you make a suitable donation to enable us to support the running of the shed in addition to any material costs we may incur.
We cannot repair electrical items for safety reasons.

Bikes for Refugees & Others in Need
We have been very busy repairing donated Bikes for Refugees (mainly Ukrainians) & others in need living in our area.
This has been a great success with at least 70 bikes repaired service and distributed to enable them to get to and from work, school or go shopping.
If you are a refugee who has moved into the area (within 15miles) in need of a Bike we have lots! Please Contact us
If you are part of another support organisation with clients who would benefit from a Bicycle (Adults or Children) Please Contact us
If you have a bike to donate please use our contact form (or check the links on Facebook). Note we have to select bikes that are not going to cost too much to repair.
