Need a fresh approach to Staff Perks that fits with your Environmental Vision?
Reward your teams with practical SKILLS that will save them MONEY and reduce ENVIRONMENTAL impact.
If the repair café movement reflects your organisation’s sustainable values, a Repair Cafe Wales Works event is no better way to motivate, engage and encourage positive behaviours amongst your staff. And recognise the team’s hard work throughout the year.
Hosted at your business premises, five ‘fixers’ will repair your employees broken things. Gifting a second life to household electrics, bikes, clothes, computers, furniture, etc. – so often seen as commercially uneconomical to repair.
Your people are fully involved in their repair. Each Fixer shares their skills and gives the staff member confidence to have a go themselves. Contributing to a can do; sustainable culture.
Why sponsor a Repair Café Wales Works event
With commercial handymen costing anything from £20 per hour to £50+ for qualified electricians, our value for money, one-day sessions provide 5 competent fixers plus host, potentially fixing up to 30 items for £1,200.
Involvement with Repair Café Wales provides a nice tick for you CSR performance and valuable PR from this unique collaboration.
And, we’ll publicly support your organisation on our website with a link from our website to yours; and you may use our logo in your marketing material.
Support Wales’ fastest growing non-profit
We know that repair cafes fulfil community needs – for volunteers and for customers. From one café in 2017, demand has grown to 16 monthly cafes across South Wales. But success means costs. For example, we pay for insurance, consumables (fuses, thread, wire etc), training, project management, tools and marketing. We rely on grants and visitor donations to meet all these costs!
Help us continue to promote the repair culture across Wales. Your Works event will make us more economically resilient to maintain existing repair cafés and open more repair cafés – delivering skill sharing opportunities in warm and inclusive spaces for people to connect with one another.
This is an opportunity to increase our impact (stop even more things going to landfill) and increase our reach – more people will get to know about Repair Cafe Wales and start coming along to our regular events.
