This is evidenced in the new venture of them having a stall at the Mandjar Markets on Easter Sunday. Grants are an essential part of not-for-profit organisations and they took advantage of a Lotterywest grant to secure a covered trailer. Their current project is seeking funding for a CNC router. Mandurah Men’s Shed is currently home to 40 people who enjoy some camaraderie while having a good feeling of contributing to a good cause. The operating hours are 9.30am to 2.15pm Tuesday to Friday. Mr Lewis said, “We welcome inquiries for membership from people who have time on their hands and want to feel they are doing something worthwhile”. “The Shed is moving more into the technological world and we would like to have more people with technology experience.” Inquiries about membership can be made to the secretary on [email protected]/images/transform/v1/crop/frm/x5jMJrX9QeggdfhvZ9fuXE/2177125f-b5ce-4ba3-959a-2c976095c969.jpg/r0_71_649_438_w1200_h678_fmax.jpg+4Photos: Supplied.A recent report that the Mandurah Men’s Shed operating premises are not large enough for their requirements was not the case according to their chairman Allan Lewis.”We operate under license from the John Tonkin College to occupy their now defunct manual arts rooms,” Mr Lewis elaborated. “This area of 500 square metres comfortably caters for the production of children’s toys and furniture which is the main thrust of our operation.”Mandurah Men’s Shed, which was formerly Kim’s Toyboys, has been part of Mandurah for more than 20 years and has built up a reputation of being a strong supporter of the community.”Despite the COVID-19 lockdown, last year we still managed to donate over 200 wooden items to community groups for the benefit of disadvantaged families,” Mr Lewis said.”Every year we give away up to 2,000 small wooden toys on wheels to children at events such as the Mandurah Children’s Festival.”Toys are made available for sale as they have to meet operating costs.
