Another Repair Cafe will be held this weekend at Sahali Mall.
There, volunteer experts will help people troubleshoot repairs of all sorts of items, except computers and cellphones.
If you have a broken item — such as a lamp, hair dryer, toaster, clothing, a bikes furniture, toys or costume jewelry — and wish to repair it, rather than send it to the dump, the Repair Cafe is the place to go.
As a bonus, the repair work you undertake with volunteers is free of charge.
The event, a joint project of Transition Kamloops and Kamloops Makerspace, will take place on Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“Repairing is even better than recycling,” said Jennifer Ste. Marie of Transition Kamloops.
“Sometimes things which have practically nothing wrong with them, and which could easily be used again after a simple repair, get tossed. Repair Cafe wants to change that.”
