Description

Yippee! It’s official, we’re kicking off 2024 up in Creggan with our Repair Cafe Foyle project which will be running alongside a ‘Bring & Buy’ sale led by @triaxneighbourhoodmanagement.

The reuse and repair stats are going to be through the roof!

Thanks for having us back Triax – Neighbourhood Management Team.

Remember, things we like to fix are:

Laptop (diagnostics)

Leather

Small household electricals

Toys

Small furniture

Magic wands and anything you can carry into the venue!

See you all soon!

About the group

Group avatar

Repair Café Foyle

Repair Café Foyle is a 'Repair & Share Foyle' project, initially incubated under the charity, Zero Waste North West, before becoming an independent community interest company.

To date, we have formed a core team of volunteers willing to 'have a wee go' at doing basic repairs on bikes, small household electrical items, woodwork, mechanicals such as sewing machines and clocks, and of course a strong textile team - that includes a leather specialist.

We travel around our community to host venues and are excited to develop our project further. We are very grateful to the team at Repair Cafe Belfast, who has given us invaluable advice as we embarked on our journey. We are also members of the Northern Ireland Resources Network - working to promote sustainable reuse and repair across Northern Ireland.
