Repair Cafe-Have your items repaired for FREE


So many of us have been struggling with rising costs, we can't always afford to replace or have items fixed, so we go without. What if it may be possible to get that item repaired for free?

We throw away vast amounts of "stuff" because we think it's reached the end of its life, including things with almost nothing wrong. Some of these items can receive a new lease on life after a simple repair. 

The trouble is that many of us have forgotten that we can repair things ourselves or lack the skills required. Knowing how to make repairs is a skill, quickly lost, and just as quickly (re)learned with some guidance and a little time. 

The repair café is all about helping you fix what's broken and keep perfectly usable items out of the landfill. You are welcome to bring your item and work on it yourself with the support and guidance of our volunteers, or you can make an appointment, drop it off and we will let you know when it's ready to be picked up! 

Appointments are best to ensure you have a spot, but we will always find a way to help you out, even if we have to put you on a waitlist first. The next Repair Café is Dec 3 (Light Up), 11 am-3:00 pm at the Griffiths Centre at 122 Government Road, Black Diamond. To book an appointment, visit
