Mens Shed Auckland East Incorporated is a nonprofit incorporated society and registered charity.
All the hard work by our board members and with the full support of the Orakei Local Board members we have managed to secure the Waiatarua building as our new home. Our next step is to finalise and sign off on the lease details. Then we start on the first stage of refurbishing and set up for our use.
We are setting up a community workshop for our members to share for their hobbies and for supporting community projects. Most of our members are retired men but we are open for anyone to apply to be a member, even if they are more interested in the social side of our group than in the workshop side.
Since we started in 2016 our members have contributed volunteer time towards projects for 4 local community centres, 3 local schools, 2 local business associations, 2 local churches, Child Cancer Auckland, and Ellerslie Theatrical Society.
