These men are working very hard to repair and then move a rather unusually complex and large cupboard. It is a storage cupboard for mattresses which are needed for the Mercury Bay Cancer Support palliative care services.
This storage area behind the Toy Library and behind the cancer Support Bookshop is a good place for the storage of their equipment. This team from the Menz Shed worked very successfully to enable tall of this work to be completed. They are a mix of retired engineers, builders, accountants, corporate office managers and farmers. All of them have a big heart for service and skills that make the work possible.
