CAG success story

A big blue van with 'Fixy wrote on the side is parked up in a grass field with blue sky and clouds behind. The van has an awning with a table underneath displaying leaflets on reuse, repair and local repair cafes. 2 members of the public and a Fixy worker are gathered around the table looking at the leaflets. To the left, a Fixy worker speaks to a member of the public. They will be promoting reuse and repair. There are also a number of blue flags and a big white banner with the Fixy logo in blue

Successful Fixy re-launch!

Fixy is back!
The Fixy project has been awarded £50,000 by Material Focus and their #RecycleYourElectricals campaign.
Fixy works closely with repair groups; which are volunteer-led community projects, that fix items for donation, saving resources from being thrown out.
To celebrate, The Fixy project held a Re-launch event at Taunton eatFestival in December 2023. Here the Fixy team spoke to 280 residents about reuse, repair and recycling and collected multiple items of tech. This tech will now go to Donate IT be data-wiped, refurbished and redistributed to those who need it most in our community!
