I'm proud to be associated with the following voluntary organisations:
- The Education and Book Appeal - Ghana (TEABAG)
I am the Treasurer and a Trustee of this charity, which operates a Vocational Training Centre in Mankoadze, a village on the coast of Ghana west of Accra.It provides Further Education in Buiding & Construction, Catering, IT, Textiles and Electrical Installation to 150 students between the ages of 16 and 26.
- Repair Cafés, doing simple repairs for free, and encouraging continued use of appliances, rather than throwing them away. I organise the Cottenham Repair Café roughly once a quarter, and I am active in the Cambridge Repair Café Co-ordinating Group and act as a Repairer at several other Repair Cafés in the Cambridge area.
