Clearing out tools for fresh start in life
A local church is calling for residents to clear out their disused tools to help people in the third world to earn a living of their own.
On Saturday 29 March Wymondham Baptist Church on Queen Street will be collecting unwanted tools to help people in developing countries become self-sufficient with a regular income.
Working along with the charity Tools With A Mission, the church is accepting most types of tools which could be refurbished to a high standard. Gardening, carpentry, mechanical, and sewing tools are all welcome, as is stationery for schoolchildren.
This is the fourth collection the church has held for TWAM. In each of the previous years they have collected more than a tonne of tools.
‘If we at WBC can turn our Norfolk spring cleaning into a fresh start for someone far away, then it’s something we’ll do again and again,’ commented Paul Smith, the church’s minister.
They are interested in collecting tools such as carpentry, motor mechanics, building, electrical and plumbing, engineering, electric power tools, sewing machines, laptops, flat screen computers, sewing and craft items, garden tools, educational text books, adult mountain bikes, manual typewriters, and chainsaws. They will not be able to accept electric hedge cutters, lawnmowers or gas cylinders. More information is available on www.twam.co.uk.
If you have any tools that you would like to donate then please bring them to Wymondham Baptist Church in Queen Street on Saturday 29 March from 10am-4pm.
For more information please contact Christine Spencer on 01953 606520.
