We are very lucky to have such a strong network of committed supporters around the country, and we are delighted to share the news that our group in Castle Cary are celebrating their 10 year anniversary.

The group, who have delivered tens of thousands of tools and hundreds of sewing machines to countries throughout Africa, meet every Tuesday at Ansford Academy, and are hoping to attract new members in 2013.

Amon Cohen, who helped set up the group in 2003, said: “In this area, there are a lot of good quality, old hand tools that are often hanging around in garden sheds.

“There are also a lot of people in this part of the world who used to work at Westlands or are agricultural workers who are good with their hands who can help restore items.

“We are incredibly passionate about what we do – a lot of people wonder how they can help people living in Africa, and this helps them create a better living for their families.

“We are desperate to get more people on board.”
