Sheds often take space at Farmers markets, but what other novel means of fund raising have Sheds undertaken as annual one-offs, or perhaps more regular events.
Our Shed takes a stand at the local annual Parish Carnival in June, but in 2019, we are also going to be going to a community event which looks to be raising money for Birmingham Children’s Hospital. In addition, by working with the local Tesco Community Champion, we have been offered space within the store entrance for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and just before Christmas.27th January 2019 at 09:54 #1946Head_ShedParticipant
I’m going to approach the church that is providing our shed venue, and asking if we can hire the church hall a couple of times a year, so we can sell items that have been made, raising funds that way. I’m also looking into taking a market stall once a month. Our local authority, Sefton, operate a number of market venues around the Borough. Once the insurance is in place, the cost of a stall isn’t astronomical, this may be a way to go.27th January 2019 at 16:17 #1947
Good luck with the market stall. What insurance do you need beyond public liability insurance?11th March 2019 at 10:14 #2249Eddy FlynnParticipant
At Bootle tool shed we’re very lucky to have our own shop attached to our workshop as we’re located in a shopping centre.28th May 2019 at 21:12 #2450Brian SketchleyParticipant
We are based near Chesterfield and try to attend lots of local events, Carnivals, Fun Days, Village Fates etc. We had a stall on Chesterfields main market on May Day (Organised by various trade unions etc) and made aroun £95 selling a range of hand made products. Most of these events will let you have a table for around £10, May Day was £20. We also display items in our local Community Centre.

It was a spam post which was deleted along with the poster’s fake account. We get them occasionally.
edit to add:
Getting back on topic I hear Peter from the new Bradford on Avon Men’s Shed will be spending next week at Longleat crushing 2 tonnes of apples using his hand built wooden mill and oak presses. Profit from juice sales will go to the Shed.
