Repair wizards wanted

Help out repairing whatever anyone brings in to the semi-annual Repair Café, Nov. 7 at Okanagan College.

Are you handy fixing small appliances, or electronics, a real whiz at bike repair? Want to volunteer a few hours of your time to share your special skills with others?

If so, the Regional Waste Reduction Office wants to hear from you as it gears up to host its semi-annual Repair Café, Saturday Nov. 7 at Okanagan College.

Repair Cafés encourage people to think about repairing their broken items instead of tossing them. As a volunteer fixer you would spend four hours fixing random items that people bring to the event.

It’s fun; you meet lots of new people, teach a bit about repairing things, and visit with like-minded fixers.

If you’re able to fix one or two things or a whole bunch of things email recycle@cord.bc.ca, or call the waste reduction office at 250-469-6250.
