Manx Workshop for the Disabled Winter newsletter
Our reputation for making trophies and mementoes has risen sharply recently!
Ballakermeen School has commissioned us to make two more trophies in the style of the one we made for junior achievement four years ago. One to go to a school in China, and another to Germany
We’ve recently suggested to the Maritime Museum in San Diego, America that we may make souvenirs from Ramsey Wood to celebrate the 150th anniversary of the building of the Star of India!
Our woodwork range has increased too, with some fabulous ‘One Off’ clock designs, and even the humble door wedge has been given the Manx treatment to act as a useful souvenir!
Our clocks and pens are now available from a sample display tray which we leave for a few days in corporate offices, collecting orders and making deliveries within the following week. Do let us know if you’d like us to include your business!
Our traditional engraving is being produced on the recently installed laser engraving machines, enabling us to produce a better quality finish at the first attempt! Pet plaques, Golf bag tags and bench plaques are amongst the latest commissions we’ve done.
Our new machinery to support Manx businesses and to avoid sourcing from ‘across’, will be with us by the end of the year, enabling us to cut complicated shuttering for the construction industry, right down to intricate patterns to use as jewellery! If this supports Manx ideas and enterprise we’d be delighted to show you what we’re able to do!
We’re celebrating 30 years Next Year!
Discussions are taking place to stage a Celebration event next year so we’ll let you know if and when it’s confirmed.
WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?
We’ll continue to provide training, equipment and employment for Manx disabled people.
We then are able to provide Manx designed, Manx made items, often from Manx materials to deliver a sense of pride in being Manx
We’re helping a section of the Manx Community who appreciates our help.
If you’d like to help you can, by:
Making a donation
Making a Bequest in your will
Collecting on our behalf
Thinking of Manx Workshop for the Disabled whenever there’s a corporate fundraising initiative.
Purchasing what we make
Asking us to make something for you, your home or business.
With all these options there’s bound to be one in which we may help each other
We look forward to hearing from you.
