Repair shop want your stories

I am a Casting AP working for Ricochet, a company which makes the award-winning BBC TV programme The Repair Shop. This highly popular show features a team of skilled craftspeople who restore items that their owners fear may be beyond saving.

I was hoping that you would be able to spread the word among your community, people who work in your organisation or anyone who might see your comms that we are looking to find items and people to take part. We are particularly interested in hearing stories from a Roma, Gypsy and/or Traveller background.

I have attached a flyer for you to put up in a communal space and/or to put out digitally through your comms.

In addition, if you or any of your colleagues can think of any individuals or stories that might be suitable, it would be great to hear about them. I’d be happy to chat more about this by email:

Ideally, we’re hoping to confirm people taking part in the programme in the next few weeks, so we’re looking to spread the word as soon as possible.

For more information about Ricochet you can visit You can also find out more about The Repair Shop by visiting our page at recent episodes of The Repair Shop are also available to watch on BBC iPlayer.

I’d be happy to answer any more questions you have and would be delighted to speak about any of this further.

Many thanks,

Ayrton McGurgan
