We need you!

Tauranga Repair Cafe has been successfully repairing and fixing items for nearly two years. Due to popular demand we need more volunteers and we need YOUR help!

Call for:
Passionate Recyclers

To join Tauranga’s Repair Café volunteer team.

Tauranga Repair Café is a volunteer driven initiative as part of Tinkd Makerspace that aims to reduce waste and overconsumption. We are a group of like-minded people with a “do it yourself” spirit and a wide variety of fixer skills who gather on the last Saturday of each month for a lively and busy
morning offering our services, free of charge, to anyone who wants to give objects destined for the landfill a second chance.

Maybe it can be fixed, maybe it can’t but at the Repair Café we take a look, offer suggestions, and repair it if we can.

Each month we see a broad range of items come in such as clothing/textile repairs, small appliances, wood repairs, bikes and electronics. We often “sell out” of space for items booked in, but we want to grow attendance so we need more volunteers so we can offer more repairs.

If you would like to volunteer, or you have questions or an interest in meeting other volunteers to hear how it works please join us during #NationalVolunteerWeek on Monday, June 17th , 5pm at Basestation, 148 Durham Street. If you can’t make it that night but you’re interested to know more please contact us.

Monday 17th June 2024 at 5pm
