Giving. The newly formed Circular Head Men’s Shed this week received a generous donation.
As part of Britton Timbers’ annual auction, the Smithton company was able to donate stock that was no longer required to the group.
The community group was formally established in August and is currently on the look out for a permanent place of residence.
Valued at $500, Britton Timbers offered the choice of either a craft pack or lining boards allowing the community group to get started on their projects.
“We haven’t made a definite decision just yet,” says Brad Gawne, president of the Circular Head Men’s Shed.
“We can take the craft pack and get a start on small projects, things like tables and chairs to either donate or make available to people at cheap rates or we can take the lining boards to line our shed when we find one.”
Mr Gawne said he has made several applications to vacant premises in Smithton but welcomes locals to come forward with further suggestions.
The Australian Men’s Shed Association was established in 2007 and now has close to 1000 sheds nationwide. It was designed as a place for men to immerse themselves in various projects while sharing in camaraderie and support.
