Rotary supports TWAM Do   you   have   any   unwanted   tools   looking   for   a   new   home?   Or   maybe   a   sewing   machine   or   laptop   (in   working   order). If so, Rotary would be delighted to take them off your hands! TWAM   are   a   Christian   charity   that   collects   unwanted   usable   tools,   refurbishes   them,   sorts   them   into   trade   tool   kits and   sends   them   to   the   developing   world   for   livelihood   creation.     They   send   around   20   containers   filled   with   over   300 tonnes   of   tools   every   year.     With   the   donated   tools   they   are   all   refurbished,   sorted   and   packed   into   trade   kits   for distribution e.g. electricians kits, plumbers kits, carpentry kits, builders kits etc. Royston   Rotary   thought   TWAM   to   be   an   excellent   operation   to   support.     There   is   already   a   collection   point   in   Royston just   waiting   for   gifts   of   tools   and   after   collection,   the   tools   will   be   taken   to   TWAM’s   warehouse     in   Ipswich,   where   they are refurbished before being shipped to developing countries. All   kinds   of   tools   are   welcome   -   including   household,   gardening,   motoring,   building,   plumbing,   electrical,   and   IT equipment     (which   will   have   all   data   removed   by   specialist   software)   and   so   on.       During   spring   and   early   summer houses,   sheds,   garages   and   business   premises   are   often   tidied   up   and   old   tools   thrown   away,   many   of   which   can   still be put to good use. To   find   out   more,   please   visit   www.twam.uk   or   to   donate   tools,   contact   Sarah   Smith,   the   local   TWAM   collector   by eMail at sarahs@twam.uk or tel: 01763 244775.
