Chairman Chris Pickles receiving AONB Acland Award from Lord Cameron of Dillington on behalf of Beer Men's Shed
As a local initiative, Beer Men's Shed needs the support of the local community. Most importantly, that means getting local men involved in the Shed. If you know anyone in the area who is the kind of person who would like to make things or repair things, let them know about Beer Men's Shed.
Showing that we have the support of the local community is key to getting funding from relevant sources such as charities, local councils and local organisations. If you're in one of these types of organisation, and if you can provide us with a "letter of support", that helps us to show potential donors that we have the local community behind us.
As the Beer Men's Shed initiative started from scratch, any donation that you could give, or get your organisation to give, would be greatly appreciated.
Pointing us in the right direction of potential sources of funding can also be of great assistance.
We'd like to thank the many organisations and people who have already helped us financially, including Action East Devon, Axminster Tools & Machinery, Beer Bag Project, Beer Craft Fairs, Beer Parish Council, Beer Regatta Committee, Clinton Devon Estates, Co-op Local Community Fund, Devon & Cornwall Police, Devon Community Foundation, Devon County Council, East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, East Devon District Council, Groves Electrical Services and Mariners' Hall Management Committee.
