Description:

Another Flag Ship project from Lizard Outreach Trust. This project takes groups of mainly women, although not exclusively, through various elements of DIY including: Plumbing, Carpentry, Interior Decorating and uses various equipment including circular saws and air tools and led to the invention of the leaky toilet system! This project bestows a great sense of empowerment and classes have been attended by 14 - 84 year olds. We have also taken the BiG groups to London to visit WEB(see projects list on right).

Project cost: £3,500 per class per year

Quote from Student: "I never dreamt I'd be able to use those tools, but I don't think about it now. We all work together in a friendly atmosphere, and I'm quite proud of what I've done"
