Repair Cafes

If you have an item that needs repairing, bring it along to one of our Repair Cafes! Organised jointly with Cambridge Carbon Footprint and many other local groups, there are now lots of Repair Cafes happening in and around Cambridge. Find out where and when they are here, and book in your items! There are no guarantees, but our volunteer repairers are very skilled, and are also keen to show people how to fix things themselves.

Energy Saving Advice Pages

Our Energy Group have produced a series of information pages on how to save energy at home and various other home energy related topics - take a look here!

Saturday 16th December: How to be human in the time of the climate crisis (The Work that Reconnects)

Ross Street Community Centre 10:00-16:30 add to google calendar
Join us for a day's workshop to explore the inspiring and revitalising power of the Work that Reconnects. If, like many others, there are times when you feel overwhelmed, angry, fearful or numb - or indeed anything else - in the face of the environmental crises, this workshop is for you. The workshop aims to reconnect you with your enthusiasm and agency, and inspire a sense of belonging and renewed hope for the future. The workshop provides an opportunity to talk about the things which are happening in the world and pressing on our hearts or minds in an open and supportive space. The workshop is cofacilitated by Kim Ashton and Anna McIvor from Transition Cambridge. The cost of the workshop is a suggested contribution of £15 to £25 to enable us to cover our costs (or just contribute whatever you can afford). Full info and booking here. More...

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all. However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations. You can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Thank you!

Volunteer vacancies
