A WIGAN charity will be able to fix people’s motoring problems when it opens its doors to the public for the first time.
Fix It, at Rosebridge Industrial Estate in Spring View, which provides training for young mechanics, is now offering car maintenance and MOTs.
Fix It is a non-profit charity which delivers vocational training in motor vehicle studies and personal development to prepare young people for working life or further education and training.
It has received funding from The Coalfield Regeneration Trust to work with school leavers who have not yet found employment or suitable training opportunities.
This funding has enabled Fix It to open its vehicle maintenance services to motorists in the Wigan Borough, providing members of the community with an opportunity to have their cars serviced and maintained at a reasonable cost by qualified mechanics.
All the profits will support the charity to continue working with the young people.
Ian Tomlinson, owner of Fix It, said: “There are no losers in this initiative. Every individual and business both locally and nationally has been affected by the impact of this recession.
“We feel that by offering a competitive low cost service to the motorists in our community, Fix It will be able to continue helping the students and provide a high quality, value for money service to car users in the borough.”
To launch this initiative, Fix It will enter every customer into a free draw each month to win a voucher for their next MOT. Second prize will be a full valet on their car.
