Men in sheds is not a worthy charity imo. Rspca, Cancer charities, the elderly need the cash, not some busy bodies, who mostly have their own sheds and workshops at home anyway, and are hardly lonely, just an excuse to escape the other half.

You have no Idea. Men in sheds is for people who are mainly pensioners (Elderly). Go and visit one and see how many of the members live on their own and at last have found a community. Love it when people with no knowledge comment.
