Our Shed is inside the Sea Scout centre in Avoch, occupying an area of approx 30 sq metres and well equipped with woodworking machinery.
We have regular practical sessions for those who want to learn new techniques or to revive those they used to have. There is a sitting room if you want to have tea or coffee and have a blether, and we have regular talks on a variety of subjects.
We do not charge fees and rely entirely on donations, either one-off or regular.
(and although we are part of the Scottish Men's Shed Association we do have some lady members).
If you'd like to run, swim, bake (or do anything else to raise some money), click the button below to get started. It's quick and easy to register and by doing so here at Wonderful.org, you can be sure that every penny raised will reach Black Isle Men's Shed.
We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.
We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.
We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
