Shed loads of funds needed

Canning Times - - NEWS - D475435

THE Sta­tion Street Men’s Shed raf­fled a hand­made doll­house at the re­cent Can­ning Show but it is still in need of funds to keep its work sta­tions well stocked.

The Men’s Shed Christ­mas Ap­peal aims to raise enough to re­place aged fridges and freez­ers, and re­plen­ish its sup­plies of ma­te­ri­als for com­mu­nity projects.

The men’s shed is a so­cial club, with work­shops for wood­work, met­al­work, and crafts.

“Our pri­mary fo­cus for fundrais­ing is for the pur­chase of a new and much needed fridge and freezer for the club’s kitchen,” Daniel Tay­lor, from the Men’s Shed, said. “This will cost ap­prox­i­mately $1800.

“Of par­tic­u­lar need in the wood work­shop is a wood thick­nesser; this would cost about $1500.”
