Trash Palace sad­ness

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

I was very sad to learn that Trash Palace will be closing at the end of April leav­ing 35 peo­ple with­out jobs.

Those peo­ple en­joy the work. I have spo­ken to some of them.

The chance of them now pick­ing up other work is al­most nil.

Mana Dis­cov­ery has done a great job in pro­vid­ing so­cial skills and vo­ca­tional train­ing for peo­ple who have men­tal ill­ness.

The com­mu­nity has also been blessed by hav­ing a choice of things to buy at very cheap prices – a great way to help peo­ple who can’t af­ford a lot and those look­ing for a bar­gain.

Could some­one come to the res­cue of this 18-year-old estab­lish­ment.
