Toynbee Hall Bring and Fix!

Posted by on Wednesday, February 1st, 2012 | No Comments

Toynbee Hall, founded in 1884, is a multi-purpose social welfare charity that delivers a range of services to the local community. They are pleased to announce that they will be holding their first ever Bring and Fix Event on Saturday Feb 11th 11:00-16:00 at Toynbee Hall,28 Commercial Street,E1 6LS.

The event will promote the excellent services they provide and also celebrate their staff, service users, resident’s and volunteer’s hidden skills that will be shared via Time Banking.

Bring & Fix is a new intergenerational fair that brings together local people of different ages to share their skills and knowledge – to help each other and have fun while doing so. It is an event where individuals ‘fix’ small things for each other, seek and provide advice and come up with solutions. The Bring and Fix idea was created by Philippe Granger of Rushey Green Time Bank.  The initiative is being supported by City Hall, TBUK and the London time bank network.

Bring and Fix events encourage anyone to get involved and bring what they know and can do for others, to repair and recycle instead of throwing away.

Fixers Include; Repairing and customising old clothes with UCL students, Knitting, fixing old jewellery, money management, Arts and crafts, musicians, Acupuncture and reflexology, letter writing, computer skills, energy advice, life and career coaching, make up skills and much, much more!!!

There will also be food, Mehndi (Henna), tarot card reading, face painting and other fun filled activities.

There will be something for the whole family so come along and enjoy this FREE day and get something fixed at the same time.
