Whether you and your team have specific repair skills to add to the mix, or would just like to volunteer, please come and see us.
Please note: There will be a mixture of drop-in and bookable events, and you will preferably need to bring along the broken item itself, or photos if that is not possible. Check individual event listings for specific guidance.
