Rotary Collection of Unwanted Tools
Sat 24th May 2014 at 10.00 - 13.00
The Rotary Club of Thame asked the public to check their sheds and lofts and bring their old tools in the main car park of Thame near the Market House. 2 tonnes of tools were collected.
Every year the Rotary Club of Thame runs a collection point for unwanted tools. These are then taken to 'Tools for Self Reliance' at Netley Marsh near
Rotarian Erroll Bateman said: "The Rotary Club of Thame would like to encourage everyone to check their garages and lofts and bring their unwanted items to us to give the craftsmen in Africa a chance to put their skills to good use for the benefit of their community as we believe it is a worthy cause."
Here are a few examples of items which were donated:
- good quality Singer round-bobbin hand machines
