Haynes Mechanix inspires a do-it-yourself approach

by

Drapers_Mechanix_300pxAs Haynes Mechanix, a course for a group of young people in North London, enters into its final week, Clive Richardson, Marketing Director at Draper Tools, explains why such a project is rewarding for all parties involved.

Richardson said: “Here at Draper Tools we are proud to be supporting the Haynes Mechanix project with the supply of tools to kit out their workshop.

“We always love to see how people use our tools to create, customise and repair things, but it feels especially rewarding to witness all the progress being made on the Polo by the young people involved in the Haynes Mechanix project. They are doing a fantastic job and it’s been great watching the car take shape as they put the skills they’ve learnt into practice.

“Whether they choose to go into motor mechanics or not, the expertise and the confidence gained as part of the project will no doubt prove to be valuable skills for life for all the young people involved.

“We hope the project ignites young people’s curiosity and inspires them to consider repairing and customising all sorts of things, embracing the do-it-yourself approach. For this you need confidence, practical skills and a little help from the right tools and equipment, all of which Haynes Mechanix is delivering.

“We’re looking forward to seeing the end result of everyone’s hard work. Not only will it be great to see the fully restored, MOT-ready Polo, there’s also the sense of pride, satisfaction and achievement for everyone involved, especially the young people.”
