Alpha donates to the Irish Men's Shed Association
7 March, 2023
Last week Alpha had the pleasure of donating some chairs to the Irish Men's Sheds Association in Newtownabbey.
Men’s sheds are a non-profit organisation. They form a community of men following retirement who still have a lot to offer and that get together to share their skills and many a story.
Most sheds offer activities such as woodwork, gardening, carpentry, and community work and further, they are places where men can find purpose, where a friend is always there.
“In a men’s shed, we always say the greatest tool we have is the kettle because there’s nothing more powerful than a cup of tea and a chat”
We were blown away by the welcoming atmosphere and hospitality we received from Alan whilst getting a tour of the space and an insight into the type of work that they do for the community.
This was a truly special place and an amazing cause to be part of.
