Lent Appeal 2023 – Tools with a Mission

Every Sunday during the season of Lent (apart from March 19th), we will be in the Church Hall after Eucharist, with boxes and bags to collect your unwanted tools and donate them to the excellent charity Tools with a Mission. They collect the tools we no longer want and deliver them to Africans who desperately need them – a simple yet brilliant idea, which is eco-friendly to boot.
