Help us break the myth that things can’t be fixed!
Do you have broken electrical or electronic items that you don’t want to throw away? Or a favourite piece of clothing that needs mending or altering? Check out these happy fixers from our last session in May – who mended a pancake maker, a rucksack and a handheld vacuum cleaner!
Our head fixer, Mike Grahn, recently featured in the celebration of Volunteers Week– have a read of this lovely piece.
Mike says: “We help fix, show how to fix and expel the myth that things can’t be fixed. Throwing away electronics as soon as they don’t work anymore is a mind-set that needs to be changed. And I can see from my involvement in Restart, that there are lots of community-minded people starting to change their opinions on how they view tech.”
