July – Docklands Repair Cafe
As reported by Docklands News:
“From volunteers with abilities in electronic and mechanical repairs to a local with a long-lasting love of sewing and mending, the Repair Cafe started off strong with locals who gave up their day to support their neighbours who came in.
One repairer worked extensively to help an elderly gentleman with a broken handbrake on his walker that was stopping him from keeping active. The gentleman watched on as his son and the repairer collaborated to ensure he walked away no longer hesitant when it came to steep hills on his walks.”
