A part of Men's Sheds Wales, the Veteran's Shed serves two main purposes, to help those in our local community, through various projects, that are unable to do for themselves, and also to help combat social isolation within the local veteran community. Veteran's Shed members benefit from socialising and sharing skills. It keeps us active and gets us involved. at the same time, it also allows our members to seek help and support from like-minded people.Why the community needs us
We raise funds by making and re-purposing various items from recycled and reclaimed materials. Our funds are used to do good in the local community through various projects such as gardening, carpentry, painting etc for our older community. We have even done a bit of bridge building! We do voluntary work to maintain the WW1 replica trench system at Bodelwyddan Castle, we have cleaned and maintained headstones of our fallen and we are in the process of setting up a 'Force For Nature' project.Our impact on the community
Having a regular donation means we will always have a pot of money. this is absolutely priceless as it means we will never have to turn anyone away who needs our help, whether that is something basic like building a new back gate for a member of our older community, paying for funeral costs for those less fortunate who have lost a loved one, or something major such as helping a veteran overcome physical or mental issues that would otherwise be left to get worse to the point of desperate action.
Everything! if you can do it, you can show us how. If we can do it, we'll teach you. Just come along and check us out!
