Repair Cafe & Laptop Rescue

Repair Cafe

On the first Saturday of each month, 10:00 – 13:00, we’ll have volunteers at The Mix to lend a hand with diagnosing and repairing household, electrical and textile items. If you have something in need of repair please book a slot by contacting Jo on or call on 07768767787.

We can also accept unwanted electrical items which we check over, fix if needed, PAT test and pass on to a new home: if you have an item you think would be useful to someone please get in touch!

Free Laptops – we’re collecting again!

Desktops rehomed

Any more old laptops out there? We’ve refurbished and rehomed 394 laptops since May 2020 and we’re still collecting!

If you have any old or unused laptops that our IT volunteers can refurbish, we’d love to have them. Devices that have been donated to us will be repaired where needed and set up ready to help people get online.

For further information or if you need a device, email Jo at
