Transition Network is pleased to make a grant to Transition Telford of £2500.00 to support Telford Repair Cafe, in 2021
This grant is part of the seed-funding scheme of the Transition: Bounce Forward project, funded by The National Lottery Community Fund. Transition Network has been delegated to distribute National Lottery money that has come from The National Lottery Community Fund’s COVID-19 Response Programme, made possible by the players of The National Lottery.
We plan to support, build and strengthen an existing enthusiastic local Repair Café, encouraging and enabling the Repair Cafe to have greater reach and a base in a regular venue, while planning later to develop an outreach function to take the service to outlying areas, saving people the difficulty and expense of having to come to the static venue.
We would like to expand the service by encouraging people to learn some basic repair skills themselves, recruiting and, where necessary, training more volunteers to assist the repair cafe, and also by purchasing some basic items to be able to do a wider variety of repairs
We really want to establish links with appropriate other groups so that people have a wide variety of opportunities to live more sustainably.
