Today we are pleased to donate a laptop to the local charity Men in Sheds. They offer the opportunity for people aged 18+ to socialise and learn new skills.
Members are also able to do talks sharing past experiences and teaching skills. Member Alun Jones has climbed to base camp and will soon be presenting a talk about his experience.
Dave came today to collect the laptop from Martin Lauer of The One Point. He was collecting it on behalf of the assistant treasurer Malcolm, who, aged 82, is still an active member of the Ferriby Men in Sheds Community. Malcolm had reached out to us to see if there were any spare laptops available that we could donate.
Dave and the team have ambitious plans for Ferriby Men in Sheds. Dave was incredibly grateful that we were able to donate the laptop, which will help with their registrations, marketing and emailing.
Above is the opening ceremony of Ferriby Shed at the sports pavilion. Julie Abrahams cut the ribbon on the 1st of September, officially marking the opening.
Even though Men in Sheds has only been open for a short time, they've grown fast and gained significant support from the community. Some of the members have already started small renovations to the pavilion, starting with repairs to a worn-out fence and creating a compost area.
They've also garnered support from local businesses, with both Hessle & Swanland Lawn Tennis Clubs donating tennis rackets and balls to the charity.
Ferriby Shed is open to men and women aged 18+ and offers a fantastic way to get involved in the community, learn new skills and make friends. Anyone interested can inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
