Update - we got one - thank you
Athy Community Men's Shed are stuck for the lend of a 110v Transformer for a few days .
If you have one or know of anyone who might be able to lend on for a few days we promise to take good care of it and put it to good work.
Currently we are working on a project in St. Vincents Hospital in Athy.
We are helping to renovate and rejuvenate the gardens behind both the End of Life ward and the Dementia ward.
We need to take out some concrete filling and could do with a 110V transformer to operate a drill.
Please share this post on your social media accounts and help get the word out . Thank you

Silver Surfer Awards 2014 – Only 4 days Left to Nominate!
Google and Age Action have joined forces once again to search for Ireland’s top Silver Surfers. The Awards celebrate and showcase older peoples’ use of the internet and technology. We are hoping that the Men’s Sheds submit nominations for this year’s awards.
This year we are looking for enthusiastic people over the age of 50 who have an interesting story to share about how they use their computer and the internet and who will become a role model to inspire more older people to embrace technology.
We are calling on people across Ireland to nominate a friend, neighbour or relative who uses technology for pleasure or as a way to enhance the quality of their life. This is the fifth year of the awards and there are five award categories as follows:
The public can nominate someone for an award by filling in a form online at www.ageaction.ie/silversurfer or by phoning Anne-Marie on 01 475 6989. I have also attached a nomination form that can be printed off. The closing date for nominations is Sunday 5th October 2014.
The five award categories are:
Google Silver Surfer Award
An older person who embraces the Internet or technology with a sense of fun and adventure
New to IT Award
A person over the age of 50 who is new to technology and has overcome challenges to become an IT user
