Age UK Exeter - Men in Sheds & Tools Company

Men in Sheds enables older men to come together to refurbish tools and garden implements that have been donated to us, for sale to the public on a not for profit basis in support of the project. The guys also make a wide range of wooden items from bird boxes to benches and put the world to rights over cups and tea and biscuits.

Our telephone number for our shop as follows: 07769 563786

If you have tools that you would like to donate, this can be done on a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 10.30pm and 3.30pm but please  telephone 07414  591602 in advance to arrange a time for delivery to our shed at 11a Wardrew Road, St Thomas, EX4 1HB (next to the shop 'Fishes')

Tools Company - Age UK Exeter recognised that for many men the Shed was inaccessible, and they felt strongly that men of all abilities should have the same opportunities to be part of this project. Tools Company was set up to support men who need a buddy to help them in the workshop. The projects 'Men in Sheds' and 'Tools Company' work side by side and support each other. 

If you like the sound of this or know someone who would enjoy or benefit from a few hours' involvement, then please get in touch; come and see what we do and how we do it, or at least take advantage of our tea and biscuits. Please call Jessica Cohen, Service Co-ordinator, on 01392 455611 for more information
