BEFORE closing the garden shed’s door for the winter, why not have a look around to see if you can find any spare tools that you could donate to a fantastic initiative?
The National Botanic Garden of Wales is now a collection point for the charity Tools For Self Reliance, which helps rural communities in Africa.
TFSR Cymru are based in Crickhowell and have 65 active volunteers who meet in their fully-equipped workshops to clean and repair donated devices. In the past eight years, they have sent more than 100 tonnes of tools to various countries in Africa.
So, bring your spare, unwanted and damaged (but not beyond repair!) tools to the Garden and we will pass them on to TFSR Cymru.
They are particularly interested in items that will be of use to carpenters, blacksmiths and plumbers. They will also accept gardening implements which they refurbish in their workshops and re-sell all over Wales, using the funds to pay freight costs.
Bring your donations to the Botanic Garden, any day, between 10am and 4pm until Thursday, November 30.
