A popular cafe in Reading completed one year successfully by fixing over 400 equipment in different domains. It included electronics, clothing, tool sharpening, computer repair, mechanical items etc.
After the monthly meeting and fixing work which are done regularly, they celebrated the Cafe's birthday in a grand way. The engineers that work at the cafe have enough knowledge to fix any errors. You can also find some similar experts in Ealing too.
Run by volunteers:
It doesn't matter whether you want to solve any hardware problem or repair your laptop, the volunteers are always ready with a proper solution to solve the issue. Starting from a broken tool to the mechanical items everything is repaired at the cafe. As it is run by volunteers, you are never charged for any fixing or repair.
Project coordinator shares her views:
The project coordinator, Rachel Goater said that, “The weekend session was successful as we raised lot of money through donations and it was really good.” She further added that, “Our volunteers decided to have a clothing swap shop where unusual repairs were made and we had over 100 people coming during the session.”
Computer programming workshop:
To make sure that the people know about the general concepts of coding, Reading Repair Cafe conducted a computer programming workshop. This helped the people to know about coding and some of them also developed few games in the result. There were also few repair sessions that made the people to solve the errors in the hardware.
