Gez Walsh shares his storyof how the Huddersfield Men’s Shed has grown since it was set up in 2016.
What started out as a small group of men meeting for a cuppa and a bit of a chat has evolved to offer a woodworking room, upholstery room, bike maintenance, gardening, art computers and much more – with chat and a cuppa still a key feature of the Shed.
Gez candidly shares his experience of volunteering at the Shed and talks about the help the Shed provides to men, some of whom are struggling with loneliness and addiction.
