“Help MenzShed Kapiti complete their New Facilities”

While bursting at the seams, a fundraising campaign and Lotto grant has enabled us to start building more facilities. We have completed the amenities block providing us with excellent new toilet and kitchen facilities plus a large meeting room. We have now commenced building an additional large workshop area. Overall, this will enhance our MenzShed operations and allow us to continue to be a successful mens group.
