Rotary supports TWAMDo 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.
