Tools with a Mission (TWAM)

St. Lawrence church is launching a project to help people in third world countries, by collecting unwanted tools and forwarding them to the Coventry branch of TWAM.  TWAM takes unwanted tools and after refurbishing them, puts them into trade packages, e.g. Carpenters, Tailors, Mechanics etc.  These are sent out to Asian and African countries where they help individuals to set themselves up as a small business.  On a monthly basis a small team is prepared to help people clear a garage or loft or collect unwanted tools.

Anyone who wishes to help with this project, or wishes to donate tools or wants their garage cleared, please contact Jim Saxton on 01295 680613 or Jo Van Dyke on 01295 680349 email saxton@tiscali.co.uk

You can read more about this and see a list of wanted tools on the TWAM website: www.twam.co.uk.  No garden tools please.

This site is maintained by villagers of Oxhill for the benefit of the community and those interested in the history, news and activities that make the village such a pleasant place to live.
