“Bring us your unwanted tools” is the message from David Peasgood of Rotary in Saffron Walden.

He is the club’s organiser of a project being undertaken to collect unwanted tools on behalf of the charity Tools with a Mission.

All types of tools are being accepted including household, gardening, motoring, building, plumbing, electrical, knitting and sewing machines and working IT equipment - which will have all data removed by specialist software.

The club will transport the tools to the TWAM’s warehouse in Ipswich where they are refurbished and sorted into trade kits before being shipped to developing countries.

Mr Peasgood said: "We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment.”
