Volunteers at a Restart Party fixing devices, cropped on hands

Description

A Restart Party is a free community repair event where volunteers help people fix their own broken or slow electronic devices and small appliances, to save them from waste and change our relationship with electronics.

Our Restart Parties have been a great success with our Fixer Volunteers assessing and repairing a set of Active PA Loudspeakers, a NAD HiFi and a set of GHD hair straighteners at our very first event.

Our Restart fixer team have assessed, identified the problem and repaired diverse items such a Tennis Ball launcher (potentially saving the local tennis club around £1,500.00 on a replacement unit) to the foot pedal of a vintage sewing machine.

Volunteers are invited to join our Fixer group by emailing - [email protected]
