ReStore Ballymena was delighted to welcome the group of post-16 students from Castle Tower School to the local store as they completed their DIY Skills course today, Wednesday 24th January (International Day of Education).


ReStore, the low-cost DIY store that builds sustainable community, while directly tackling poverty across the island of Ireland, is part of Habitat for Humanity an international charitable organisation that helps people in your community and around the world build or improve a place they can call home.



Students from the local school attended the store over the past two weeks and enjoyed learning some life-skills while gaining hands-on experience with tools.

The DIY Foundations course, accredited by OCN NI, teaches some basic DIY skills to help you around your home, including how to wire a plug, put up shelves, build flat pack furniture, use common tools and more.


A spokesperson for ReStore commented:


"It was wonderful to welcome young people from Castle Tower School's post-16 group to ReStore Ballymena on International Day of Education! The group have been in-store taking part in our OCN-accredited DIY Skills course for the past couple of weeks.


"Thank you to everyone for taking part, we hope you'll be putting your new-found DIY skills to the test!"
