Men In Sheds

Sandie Andrew presented her £500 Gusto Community Fund donation to Men In Sheds which is a project for men of 55 years and over. It provides a well-equipped workshop where men can work together on a range of practical activities. Activities mainly focus on wood-working, furniture restoration, clock repairs and general hobby interests, new project ideas are always welcome. Members can put their skills to good use, share their knowledge, learn new skills and generally put the world to rights over a cup of tea. Members come from a wide variety of backgrounds ranging from highly skilled to those with little or no experience, but all work together and there is a roll for everyone.

Over a period of time, Sandie has had the pleasure of getting to know the guys that make up Collingham Men In sheds. In exchange for a home baked cake, Sandie has been receiving tuition on a wood turning lathe where she can now confidently turn and finish a very respectable bowl.

Men In Sheds have also received a Gusto Community Fund donation from a Collingham home owner.
