The Bourton Shed
The Bourton Men in Sheds core objective is to combat rural loneliness and provide a positive health benefit to our community. As people live longer and hope to remain fit and able, they often need something to keep them active, physically and mentally. The Bourton Shed is where men come together to benefit themselves and the community, interact socially and have a laugh. Sometimes it can be difficult to get men involved in social groups. However, many men enjoy using their own shed to carry out repairs or tinker with machinery or build things on their own. The Bourton Men in Sheds initiative provides an environment ,“The Bourton Shed”, and the social group, “The Shedders”, where men come together for their own benefit and well being, along with providing a much needed service to the local community.
Your Kind Gift
Tisski’s amazing generosity will allow us to purchase a 32ft x 10ft portakabin which will become a workshop for our shedders. Currently they have to work outside in a car park, as our very small shed is full of tools and materials. The portakabin will allow us to keep our shedders safe and active throughout the Winter, the time when those alone suffer the most. With extended covered space, we can reach out to those with more serious health issues increasing the health value we provide our community – THANK YOU TISSKI. We’ll keep you updated on our progress via a video diary. From this day on, any Tisskian becomes an honouree member of our shed and you are welcome to join us on any Friday morning to get stuck into shed stuff or just drink tea and eat cake.
