Town Mayor delighted to support two brilliant initiatives at the Lindfield Repair Cafe
The Mayor of Haywards Heath was amazed by the wonderful work that goes on at the Lindfield Repair Café and their special computer event with the Computer for Kids Charity last Saturday.
Town Mayor, Cllr Howard Mundin commented:
“It was truly wonderful to see the skills of the volunteers at the Repair Café and to witness the buzz of fun and friendship enjoyed by everyone taking part. Not only do Trevor and his volunteers repair your goods, but they are happy to share their knowledge and they even have a special kid’s table encouraging young people to repair their toys and games.
I was also heartened by the tremendous good work of the Computers for Kids Charity. What a marvellous initiative to take people’s unwanted old computers and turn them into learning tools for children in the local area. I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the computer-based workshop which armed young people with the skills they need to carry out their own upgrades and repairs. I may even now be able to attempt some of my own!
Initiatives like this are so fantastic for our community, they save money, help families on low income, reduce landfill and promote sustainability.
Thank you so much to Trevor, Colin and all the volunteers for a super visit and for all the great work they do for our community.”
