Wymondham Baptist Church collecting tools for third world
The weekend of 2-3 October 2010, Wymondham Baptist Church will be collecting unwanted tools as part of this year’s Harvest celebration.
To enable people in the third world to become self-sufficient, Ipswich-based charity Tools With A Mission will refurbish the tools we collect and send them to countries.
The church is accepting most types of tools, including tools from the shed, as well as gardening, DIY, tailoring, knitting, and manual typewriters. Basically any tools that don’t require electricity can be refurbished to a high standard, and help people become self sufficient with a regular income. (Please find a different home for your lawn mower related tools though!)
The church’s pastor, Alan Davies, said that ‘We want to do something different this year from the usual celebrating the food we have – we’re really excited about doing something to help others reap an ongoing harvest of their own.’
If you have any tools that you would like to donate then please bring them to Wymondham Baptist Church in Queen Street on Saturday 2nd October 10am-4pm for an Open Day, or Sunday 3rd October 10:30am—noon for our Harvest Festival Service.
For more information please contact Pastor Alan Davies on 01953 606 520 for further information.
