Age Concern Greenwich is delighted to have secured fun ding to deliver an exciting new project called “Men in Sheds”.
The Men’s Shed concept originates from Australia and brings together older, isolated men, in a space they are comfortable with, to socialise and carry out activities that bring benefit to the local community and charities. Some planned activities include recycling second-hand materials into gardening containers, trugs, bird tables and boxes. Men can meet up to use their existing skills, learn new skills, share ideas or just put the world to rights over a cup of tea. It’s about friendship, fun and getting out.
We welcome the involvement of volunteers with an interest or experience in any of the following: sourcing recyclable items, woodwork, design, marketing or IT skills, or anyone who would like to be involved in the project from the onset i.e. planning and developing.
If you would like further details on volunteering on the project please contact Pauline Cahill on 020 8294 3017 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
