Tools for Change13th May 2016 • Stephanie's Blog • Stephanie Donaldson
This is such a good idea. Clear your shed of old or broken hand tools between the 9th May and the 9th June and take them along to your local Wyevale Garden Centre. They are collecting them with the Conservation Foundation’s Tools Shed project which takes the tools to prison workshops where they are repaired and reconditioned by the prisoners and then distributed to schools, charities and community groups. No secateurs though, despite them appearing in the photograph. It’s a real win/win/win scenario – you declutter your shed, prisoners get meaningful work and the garden tools go to people who need them. And should you know of a local school or community group who would benefit from some free reconditioned tools please email firstname.lastname@example.org . As a thank you Wyevale are offering a 10% discount on hand tools to anyone participates up until June the 9th.
