Beer Men’s Shed launches its Crowdfunder – a really worthwhile project for male carers, please support
Beer Men’s Shed says: In a rural area like East Devon, it’s easy as men get older for them to feel lonely, isolated, and excluded from life around them. Some may live on their own, may have lost their lifelong partner, may live with a partner or family member who they have to care for. Some may just have lost their sense of purpose in life after retiring from work. Having somewhere that they can go to regularly and where they can meet other men, have a friendly chat and a cuppa, make something useful or repair something that matters to someone, can make a great difference to a man’s life, to his mental health and also to his physical health. We live in one of the most beautiful areas in the UK – Beer has even been voted English “village of the year” – but if you feel that you’re locked indoors, or that you’re duty-bound always to stay at home and look after your partner, you can only too easily find yourself in a downward spiral that you don’t feel that you can get out of – not on your own. … READ ON AND DONATE HERE.
