Description

Join Us at the Repair Café!

Is your bicycle gathering dust in the garage? Do you have a toaster that's lost its spark? Don't toss them out just yet! We're excited to announce our Repair Café event, where we're giving new life to your ageing or broken items.

Our skilled volunteers will be on hand to help repair a variety of items, from bikes to electronics, clothing to household appliances, and more. Here's what we're planning:

  • Bicycle repairs by the expert from Fix ur Ride.
  • Computers by TechMate. Bring your computer-related issues for diagnosis and solutions.
  • Electrical & Electronics including, Household Appliances: The appliance specialists from Ecotech Services and Molten Media will be able to assist.
  • Clothing: Our talented volunteer seamstresses will mend your favourite garments.
  • Jewellery repairs by Workspace Studios to bring your favourite pieces back to life.
  • General Repairs: If it's broken, we'll do our best to fix it!

Please Register: To help us help you, please register for this free event. Provide a brief description of the issue and the item(s) you need repairing. This way, our volunteer repairers can come prepared with the right tools and parts. We would appreciate it if items are brought in no later than 1 PM to give our repairers time to take a look.  If you haven’t registered you can still come along on the day.

Last time, we achieved 100 successful repairs, including household appliances, clothing, toys, and bicycles coming out of garages and finding their way back to usefulness.  Let's work together to reduce waste, promote sustainability, and revive your items! We look forward to seeing you at the Repair Café event and giving your belongings a new lease of life.
