Empanda becomes a member of UK Men’s Sheds Association

We are delighted to be working on a new project – the creation of a ‘Men’s Shed’ Group in Brandon and as part of the process of getting the Men’s Shed Group up and running, Empanda has joined the Men’s Sheds Association.

Men’s Sheds groups offer socially isolated men a friendly and welcoming meeting place where they can come together to share their skills and knowledge with others, learn new skills or redevelop old ones, and have fun. For more information on Men’s Sheds, go to www.menssheds.org.uk.

It’s early days yet, and whilst we have the ‘shed’ in place, which is located within the grounds of the Brandon Day Centre, we are actively seeking funding opportunities to get the shed equipped and ready to go. We are now recruiting for a volunteer to co-ordinate this exciting new project, as well as volunteers willing to lead groups.

If you, or anyone you know might be interested in helping us turn this aspiration into a reality, then we’d love to hear from you. Please click here for further information.
