Mahu Trading Post chair Peter Marwick, left, presented a cheque for $10,000 to Men’s Shed Warkworth secretary Paul Maguiness last week.
Peter said the Trading Post was happy to support the Men’s Shed for the work it was already doing in the community, even though it had not officially opened.
He added that the relationship with Men’s Shed was a two-way street. Already, shed participants were repairing and rehabilitating items sold at the Trading Post, raising more cash for community causes.
The Men’s Shed houses a range of woodworking, engineering and other tools and is open to men and women.
The shed is located at the A&P Showgrounds behind Kowhai Crafts. It officially opens this Saturday, May 25, from 9am to 2pm. All welcome.
