Join Our Shed For Men

Why join our shed, men from all walks of life are joining mens sheds all over the country. Socialising with other blokes is what the new trend is recommending. You can go down to your local men’s shed and have a cuppa and a chat. Men retiring from the work force tend to lose all their mates from work and need to go down to one of the local sheds and join in on the activities of a local men’s shed.

We are looking for company sponsorship for our Men’s Shed, we are a registered charity with full DGR certification. Our Australian Business registration number ABN 26 176 420 728  and we are classed as a Charitable Institution. This means any company sponsorship is tax deductible. We need funding to keep our community projects going, we do charity work for our local schools and child care centres as well as support for men in retirement villages that need our support to help them set up with activities for their places that they live in. We are about to take on a support role where men who have early stage dementia and early stage Alzheimer’s can come along to our shed and do activities with us.

Charity Donation Appeal

Charity donation appeal for our community projects, help to support our charity and donate to our Men’s Shed. We are looking for company sponsors and members of the community to give us a charity donation for our shed. We do all kinds of charitable things for our community. We fix things for the elderly and help the disabled when they need something repaired or installed. If you have no family support then that is where we come into help support those that are needy. Our organisation also does community support in our shed with mentoring men who mens health issues, everything from depression to men recovering after a stroke. We are supportive of each other. We have many men who are qualified tradesmen and they show the other men how to do things. All donations over $2.00 in Australia is tax deductible. To be honest I am not sure about other countries polices are on donating to an Australian non profit charity. Read the rest…

Men’s Sheds – Are They For You

Posted by Dave Corbett on March 1, 2012 with No Comments as , , ,

Men’s Sheds Are All Over The world!

Men’s Sheds – Are they for you, the answer is more than likely yes! Men work all their lives and suddenly they are retired from the workforce. Whether it is by design or by accident, you have suddenly stopped working, you where very use to getting up 5 days a week and going to work. Many men find that they don’t cope very well, with suddenly lots of time on their hand, and sometimes depression can sneak up on them.

This is where Men’s Sheds can help you. They  have lots of activities to do and lots of good friends to be made, check out what do we do in our shed and see what we are up to. Men’s Sheds have taken off all over the world, here is one article from the United Kingdom, about Men In Sheds. Another media presentation about men in sheds and mens needs, is shown in this video.
