First the Goat Races and now Wonder Workshop.

Wonder Workshop, a popular charity which hires people with disabilities to create recycled art from scrap metal, has announced they are closing down at the end of October, 2017.

“We are sad to break this news and so suddenly,” says a post on the Wonder Workshop Facebook page.

“We planned to restructure and have the organization continue into a new phase of its life span, but alas, we have no choice but to close our doors and cease operating as a business,” the post continues.

All of their remaining stock will be 50 percent off for the month of October.

Both the Goat Races and Wonder Workshop were founded by Arusha-based photographer Paul Joynson-Hicks.

When reached for comment, Wonder Workshop declined.
