Repair Cafes are community events that match people who need stuff fixed with people who can fix things. Experienced volunteer repairers at the 'Solutions Fair Repair Cafe' at the Cambridge Earth Optimism Day will be pin-pointing faults, repairing where possible and teaching basic repair skills. Gadgets, electronics, toys, bikes, clothes, household items and appliances all welcome. This is a free event. We welcome donations to help us cover costs.
