Kevin is a volunteer in the tools workshop in Garvald Edinburgh, where he has been working since 2015. Kevin is very interested in lorries (especially Scania ones) and refurbishing tools, both in and outside of work. He also enjoys fixing up cars and vans with his father, who is a mechanic.
Kevin loves working on the larger, more complex tools that are donated to the workshop, such as engineering vices, bolt cutters and sledge hammers. “I enjoy fixing them up because each one is different”. He likes to completely take these tools apart, clean them thoroughly and put them back together. Kev enjoys always having something new to learn and likes how the workshop is organised.
Kevin says he enjoys doing the work in the workshop because it helps people who need the tools more than we do. He also likes the feeling of giving something back. He says he hopes the people who receive the tools he has worked on, appreciate his effort to fix them up and he hopes they make good use of them.
