The next Repair Café will be held on Saturday, Oct. 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Sahali Mall.
The Repair Café is a joint project of Transition Kamloops and Kamloops Makerspace and features a team of volunteer experts troubleshooting problems and helping people repairing their items.
Anything one can carry in (except computers and cellphones) is fair game, including lamps, hair dryers, toasters, clothes, bikes, furniture, toys and costume jewelry.
Since last year’s inaugural Repair Café, more than 150 items have been saved from the landfill.
Those wishing to volunteer for the event, either as skilled fixers or friendly greeters, can email firstname.lastname@example.org.
