Repair and Share Foyle: Empowering Community, One Fix at a Time!

 

Who Are We:

Repair and Share Foyle is a community interest company with a mission to eradicate waste in the Derry and Strabane District Council Area. 

Chances are you’ve already come across our flagship project Repair Café Foyle. Our Repair Café events are a different venue throughout the city each month. We invite the public to bring in their broken items and our volunteer fixers try their best to repair them. We held our first ever repair café in May 2022 which means that this month, we are celebrating our 2nd Birthday! We have successfully repaired over 260 items in the last two years and saved approximately 850kg of waste from landfill.

 

What Are Our Plans:

We Found a Home! We have officially found a long-term home in Rathmore Business Park. Our new premise will allow us to grow and expand our horizons. We will continue to run our Repair Cafés, but we have so many more projects in the pipeline. One of the key projects that we hope to deliver soon is the “Library of Things”. This will operate like a regular library but instead of borrowing books you can get hand tools, garden tools, carpet cleaners and so much more! Our premise will allow us to operate our Library of Things, run events and allow us to expand and figure out new ways to tackle waste.

 

What Do We Need:

In order to get up and running, we need your help! The premise is great, but it needs a bit of work. The money generated through this crowdfunder will be used to get the premise ready for use. We will need to give it a makeover, buy workstations, furniture, and equipment. We'll do our best to buy second hand where we can. By supporting us, you're investing in a sustainable future and a tighter-knit community (excuse the pun). With your help, we can open the doors in our new premises - and we promise to make it an asset available to all! 

 

We appreciate donations of all sizes, big and small, so help us to make our 2nd Birthday our best one yet! 

 

Thank you for your continued support.
