A pop up repair shop will be open alternate Fridays from Friday 3 February, from 9am to 2pm, at the entrance to Warrington Market.
The Zero Waste Repair Station aims to reduce what we throw away, particularly electrical items. Mr Evans will therefore be setting up every two weeks on Fridays to support with small electrical repairs for free or, if he doesn’t have the parts required from stripped-down items that have been donated to him, he will just charge cost price for new parts.
Mr Evans will bring electrical testing kit to check if items are repairable and if so, he will take them home for repair and text the customer when the items are fixed.
In return, Mr Evans asks for a donation to two charities if people can afford to give:
- The Christie Charity which helps to provide support to help cancer patients’ lives
- St Rocco’s Hospice which provides care to local residents with life-limiting illnesses
The popup repair shop also aims to help with the cost of living crisis too, as repairing items can often work out more cost effective than throwing away and replacing with brand new items.
The pop-up repair shop will be open on the following dates:
- Friday 3 February
- Friday 17 February
- Friday 3 March
- Friday 17 March
