Join groups like Men in Sheds West Bletchley who have already raised over £155 with easyfundraising. Paul said – “easyfundraising provides a useful way for Shed supporters to help with our fundraising. It doesn’t cost supporters to use and a percentage of their online purchases comes to the Shed in the form of a quarterly payment directly to our bank well-known high-street names like John Lewis & Partners, Argos, Wickes and many others will all pay a percentage of the transaction value which benefits the Shed. I thoroughly recommend it.”Give your Shed a big funding boost this Christmas, sign-up today!
We featured an article in Shoulder to Shoulder 053 – July from Martin Young from Dunstable Men’s Shed, who travelled around Australia and New Zealand, starting in November 2018, visiting Sheds along the way.
Martin shared that there were several things he learned from the Sheds he stopped off at, and he has now developed a blog for those looking to read more about his journey and experiences with those Sheds.
