In July 2014 several trustees arranged a visit with Age UK Surrey to Men in Sheds. This project brings together older, isolated men to bond over practical activities such as woodwork, metalwork and furniture restoration. The trustees were hugely impressed by the high standard of projects underway and excellent workshop facilities on show.
Chair of the Trustees ‘Suzanne Gardiner’ said:
“The dedication of John, the project leader was truly inspiring. It is visiting projects like this that remind us all why we are involved in the Trust and just how much these grants can make a difference to older people. Seeing the work of John and people like him really do make it all worth while.”
