Ballarat East Community Mens Shed

Your donations at work (mid year update)

Men’s shed members have replaced some rusty and broken water pipes, so not only have these men learnt new skills, they now have a clean drinking water supply for all attendees and visitors.

The BECS program has been providing a vital service for both retired and at risk men in the Ballarat East community for 7 years.  The men learn and share the skills of fabricating wooden and metal items for the general community and organisations as well as providing a BBQ facility for many events around the Ballarat region.


The funding we provide for this program is generated from Workplace Giving programs.


This organisation has received funding from United Way Ballarat in the following years:
