Do you have any tools that seem beyond repair or are just unwanted? If so, then they could help villagers in South Africa, Kenya and Zambia earn a living and support themselves.
A collection has been organised by Morley Churches Together for Saturday October 11 outside Morley’s Asda store in aid of Tools with a Mission, a charity that enables people overseas to earn a living and support themselves and their families.
Tools and handtools wanted include: Carpentry, motor mechanics, builders, electricians and plumbing, engineering, electric power tools, drills, sanders, planers, lathes, bench and band saws, sewing machines, complete knitting machines, laptops, flat screen computers, sewing and craft items, garden forks, spares, hoes, rakes, sledge hammers, pick axes, motor lawnmowers, strimmers and chainsaws.
Things that the collection won’t be able to accept include glass jars, gas bottles, electric hedgecutters and lawnmowers.
Adult mountain bikes and men’s bikes and education text books are also needed.
Once collected, they are mended, refurbished and repackaged as tool kits for people in Africa to earn a living for their families.
For those unable to get to the event, call Rev Mike Godfrey on 0113 2523399 who will arrange collection.
