Funded by the Aspiring Communities Fund, we’ll be holding a series of Upcycling Sessions this year. Come along and meet new friends, have a chat and learn a new skill! We can arrange group bookings, call or email SHAX for more details
SHAX REMAKERY NOW OPEN!
Our Remakery is now open weekdays 9.30 to 4. Drop in for some advice on upcycling or re-purposing unwanted items. We’ll even PAT test small electrical items.
SHAX SAYS THANK YOU TO OUR FUNDERS!
NITHSDALE AREA COMMITTEE, DUMFRIES & GALLOWAY COUNCIL
Nithsdale Area Committee awarded SHAX £10,000 towards our running costs in 2018/19, acknowledging the service we provide to people in crisis and supporting their anti-poverty agenda. We’re very grateful for this support.
THE HOLYWOOD TRUST
We’re very grateful to The Holywood Trust for their grant of £20,000 towards our running costs in 2018/19. This will help us support young people in crisis and provide worthwhile volunteer and work placement opportunities.
NATIONWIDE BUILDING SOCIETY
SHAX gratefully thanks Nationwide Building Society for their award of £5,000 to buy emergency Starter Pack items. Our special thanks go to Katrina and her team at Nationwide Dumfries for all their help too!
THE ROBERTSON TRUST
We’d like to give our grateful thanks to The Robertson Trust for their award of £14,500 in December 2017. The funding will support our volunteer and work placement programme, enabling SHAX to provide more opportunities for local people to improve their health & wellbeing and/or their chance of gaining employment
