Help Women Build!

'Women Build!' is a new 18 week project taking place in Torquay that will train women who are on probation or un-employed in carpentry and DIY skills.
Starting in June, women will learn to build - not only with wood, but they will build confidence, new networks and friendships, mental and emotional resilience and gain the tools to make changes in their lives and communities. We need to raise additional funds to enable women who don't live near the workshop to attend by raising money to pay for their travel by public transport. We would also like to be able to buy additional materials to enhance their training. 
For example £20 would pay for one woman to travel from Exeter to the workshop for one week of the course.  £10 would pay for additional material for one woman to make a small set of shelves for herself.  £120 would pay for the travel cost for one woman for 6 weeks, £360 would pay for one woman for the whole project.
By donating and being part of supporting this you will make a huge difference to those women who are keen to make some positive changes in their lives.
In addition to this, for anyone who donates £40 or more, we will be giving away a free voucher for a 2 hour weekend 'Tool Sharpening Master Class'!
