Generous residents donate hundreds of tools
A GARAGE-FULL of tools and equipment has been donated to an international charity by generous Clevedon residents.
Instead of asking for the usual donations of food, staff and clergy at St Andrew’s Church in Old Church Road asked for people to dig out unwanted tools as part of its harvest celebrations.
As a result, hundreds of pieces of gardening, DIY, car maintenance and building equipment were donated along with sewing machines.
These will now be passed on to the charity, Tools with a Mission, which will refurbish any that need it before taking them to developing countries, where it will also run workshops demonstrating how to use them.
Reverend Terry Baillie said: “We had a garage-full of items donated.
