Local Men’s Shed members will deliver much-needed workshop and garden tools to bushfire affected communities in New South Wales.

“I am calling on our community to throw support behind the City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed bushfire tool donation appeal,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

“After bushfires have ravaged many country homes and properties, locals are in great need of new workshop and garden tools.”

“Australians have been so generous in supporting families and communities affected by the fires, and now we are asking for much needed tools and equipment.”

“Over the next month, will be collecting tools at our City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed in Concord, which will be donated to our friends doing it tough,” City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed Treasurer Norm Tate said.

Functioning hand tools can be dropped off at the City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday 8am–12pm. Please call ahead on 9745 1487 before donating.

The Men’s Shed is located at Concord Community Centre, 1a Gipps Street, Concord.

“The tools will be delivered by City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed to Country Women’s Associations and Men’s Sheds in bushfire affected areas of New South Wales, who will then distribute the tools to those in need,” City of Canada Bay Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.

“I encourage all of us to open our hearts and give generously to our neighbours in need.”

“Men's Sheds are valuable community assets where men and women can meet and build local networks before and after retirement. The benefits of men's sheds include growing friendships, improved mental and physical health, and contributing to our community,” City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed Treasurer Norm Tate said.

“The City of Canada Bay Men’s Shed is a fantastic initiative in our City. We are proud to have supported the group from its foundation in 2013 all the way through to their generous bushfire donation program,” Mayor Angelo Tsirekas said.
