Welcome to the YVMS website

The Yass Valley Men’s Shed challenges all Sheds in Australia to raise $1,000 (or more if possible) to assist those affected by the drought.  If all 1,000 Sheds can raise $1,000 we will have helped to the tune of $1 million!

To any Shed that accepts this challenge, can you please advise the amount of your donation so we can tally the results Australia wide to see how close we get to our $1 million ambition?  We might want to do this again in future major national emergencies or catastrophies.  You are invited to report your donation to the email address: secretary@yassmensshed.org.au.  Many thanks. 

See our separate “Drought Challenge” page for updated totals of donations from Sheds so far.


The Yass Valley Men’s Shed (YVMS) is a community organisation where men can come and hang out. We also have a substantial workshop available to members including woodwork and metal working equipment.

The shed aspires to the motto of “minimal bureaucracy, maximum fun” with the goal for each member to get what they need out of the shed. Whether that be help with a project, the opportunity to learn a new skill or just to chat and have a coffee.
