'Tools with a Mission' or TWAM

Just a reminder of a useful way of disposing of unwanted tools of all kinds — carpentry, mechanical, electrical, car maintenance, gardening, sewing and knitting machines, even haberdashery goods.

TWAM can put these to good use, even if they are already well used. They have workshops manned by volunteers who repair and make them workable again. The tools are then assembled into "Kits" and sent on request to Africa to people who have had training but need the suitable tools to get started in work. It is amazing how much difference a sewing machine and haberdashery pack, or a carpentry kit can make to someone and their family, when they can earn a living for themselves.

To find out more visit Bryan Orchard in the 'Cartridge' shop in Grove Street, Wantage.

He has booklets and information available and can tell you more about how it all happens or visit facebook.com/toolswithamission

The Chapel looks a bit bare without them, but the garlands have found a good home and were taken to Framlands Care Home. The group have various projects on the go. Some are knitting for...
