On the first Thursday of every month, come and get your broken household items repaired!
21st century humans throw away vast amounts of stuff. In fact, Canadians throw away almost 800 kilos of garbage a year - per person! Sometimes things with almost nothing wrong are tossed out since buying new has become cheaper than ever. These things can easily get a new lease on life after a simple repair. The trouble is, lots of people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves or they no longer know how. During this 2 hour event, we will have individuals on hand who can help you with your items that need fixing. If you have a small appliance or something that needs fixing, please bring it in and have it repaired - for free :)
Thanks to our awesome team of volunteer "fixers", around two-thirds of all the broken items that are brought get repaired! Some of the items that have been repaired in the past are: toaster ovens, hair curlers, clocks, lamps, jeans, purses, coats, chairs, radios, microwaves, etc.
You can find the Repair Cafe at Reimagine Co, 211 King St (the old Novack's building) in the heart of downtown London!
*** PLEASE RSVP if you would like to attend. Due to the overwhelming response to our events, we have implemented a new RSVP system: in order to come to this event, you need to RSVP on the Eventbrite website and not just on Facebook.

Thank you for your understanding and collaboration, which will allow us to keep these events free of charge and open to all :) ***
