Well what a fabulous success it has been so far for our GIGA Events. We have been on the road since May this year. Our initial GIGA event started in November last year and we have gone from strength to strength. Our last event gave us 40 items to PAT TEST and repair. It’s wonderful to see how far we have come. We have also met some wonderful organisations and people.

Working alongside Merseyside Recycling and Waste Authority has been mutually beneficial and we have saved numerous items from Landfill as well as saving people money.

We have our next event at the offices of Merseyside Recycling and Waste on Thursday 26th July between 11am and 2pm. We are really excited about this one.

Directions are above in the poster telling you how to get there by train, bus and car. The address is 7th Floor, No 1 Mann Island, Liverpool, L3 1BP.

We will be carrying out FREE PAT TESTING, and FREE repairs during the event. It’s been so satisfying knowing we are helping the environment and helping people.

We would love to see you at Mann Island.

IMPORTANT UPDATE …  30th November 2017

We have extended the EVENT TIMES and will be open from 10am till 4pm.

Will will have an hours break at 12 till 1pm.


Is your toaster toast or your kettle run out of steam?  Do you have old electrics/electronics lying around at home?  From kettles to cameras, cameras to power drills, laptops to P.C’s.  PLEASE DONT THROW THEM AWAY!

Makeitworkshop will carry out FREE PAT TESTS and check if your item is still useable.  We can also discuss how to fix it.

There are many options available if you have unwanted or unused electrical/electronic items, donation to a worthy cause, taking the working parts of a broken item and finding another use, fixing it are just a few ideas.

We are running our 2nd ELECTRICAL/ELECTRONIC WORKSHOP on Saturday 2nd December between 1pm and 3pm.  You can find us on the corner of Market Street and Princes Street (just off Eastbank Street).  Check out the map for directions.

In the current climate when we are looking for ways to cut back and reduce our spending, this is a brilliant opportunity to help SAVE YOU MONEY and cut down on unnecessary waste going to the landfill.

We look forward to seeing you all on Saturday 2nd December.
