Berwickshire Housing Association Tenant Volunteers were pleased to support Coldstream's Men Shed recently by donating £350 towards the purchase of new tools, materials and equipment from the Berwickshire Housing Association Grant Fund.
Coldstream’s Men Shed provides the opportunity for local residents to make friends, share skills and participate in a range of practical projects.
The Men Shed concept is one which is growing throughout the country providing a larger version of a typical man’s shed in the garden, a place to pursue practical interests and share tools and resources to work on projects in a friendly and safe environment.
Peter Howe, Secretary of The Men Shed were delighted to receive this generous donation from Berwickshire Housing Association. “As we are a new organisation and growing rapidly there are all sorts of challenges to be met and this donation will help ensure our overheads are met. We are particularly pleased to be made so welcome by an established community enterprise and look forward to future co-operation in our work for and within the community”.
