The Redmond Centre hosted the Hackney Fixers and Give or Take event where hundreds of local residents participated in a community exchange day.
Over 200 people turned up to give and take a diverse range of items. Many people also visited the Manor House Pact stall and learned more about the project and all its activities and training opportunities!
The Hackney Fixers also were on hand fixing an array of electrical items. Local resident Halil and his son managed to get a faulty computer fixed:
“This is a great event, I also attended last year and enjoyed the atmosphere, Thank you!”
A delicious FREE healthy lunch was prepared for everyone to sample as part of our PACT meals project. Local shops donated surplus food and volunteers from all ages drummed up a tasty feast for all.
The day was a great success with lots of people connected together to help reduce the amount of food, clothes, electrical and bric and brac waste, while connecting with their local community!
