The MIW shop is a one-of-a-kind in the town centre. It not only provides us with the fundraising capability we depend upon to survive but also the kind of attraction a town like Southport desperately needs, to bring both uniqueness to the town centre and interest for both local people and visitors alike.
Began back in 2012, the former MIW projects, upon which the company was initially founded, aim to enact our organisation’s recycling goals based around repair and re-use. These projects now operate through the MakeIt Network of non-profit enterprises. Our most recent innovation is the GIGA events (Get It Going Again) which are run from a workshop-like unit at 16 Princes Street, PR8 1EZ. These events are open to the public and offer mostly free repair services for all manner of small electrical items on a no-fix/no fee basis. To find out more about GIGA CLICK HERE
Over time the aim is to build a gallery of images to promote the fundraising shop and the wider MakeIt Network. Watch out for more pictures of projects to follow.
