A new life for your old tools

Malvern Hills’ Tools For Self Reliance is a newly formed group of volunteers who meet once a week and refurbish old tools of all sorts to a good, working standard and then sends them to six countries in Africa via its parent charity in Southampton. It accepts all sorts of tools: for carpentry, car mechanics, tailoring, gardening and building, as well as power tools and sewing machines.

It is affiliated to Tools For Self Reliance, a charity established in 1979 that works with local groups in Tanzania, Malawi, Uganda, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Zambia. For more information, visit the website where you can see how refurbished tools are used in Africa.

Please contact Martin on 01684 540491 if you have tools to donate or if you would like to join the group and donate your time and skills to help others. It meets every Wednesday morning at present.
