Repair Cafe:  Worcester, Malvern Hills, Kidderminster and Bewdley

Summary: The Repair Cafe is a monthly event organised by the local subsidiaries of Transition Network.  The Repair Cafes are run by groups of volunteers who will set their hands to repair “anything that fits through the door”.  This includes clothing and textiles and electrical items. No charge is made for any repair or advice given but customers’ generous donations help to keep the service free at the point of delivery, cover costs, and purchase specialist tools and consumables.
