What we do

The Coventry refurbishment centre specialises in the make up of carpentry kits and refurbishment of sewing machines and Haberdashery.  We have 2 industrial units, one is run as a workshop for refurbishment and the other as a warehouse to receive donations and undertake sorting.  Coventry works closely with the Coventry Waste Recycling Centre, where each week a load of tools is picked up.  Similarly a shed is kept at Rugby waste recycling centre which is emptied as required.  4 tonnes of donated tools have come from the sheds.

We are looking to expand our work in Coventry over the next 12 months. To do this we need more volunteers! Find out more about volunteering at our Coventry centre below:

Coventry covers the western half of the UK, undertaking a large number of van journeys each year, covering Carlisle to Weston Super Mare.  In the first 6 months of the year 71 tool collections were made, with a van run between Coventry and Ipswich running at least weekly with a growing amount of donations coming in.  Volunteer drivers from Coventry put in many miles for TWAM collecting from our collectors.

We have 15 volunteers, covering refurbishment, sorting and packing with 2 specialising in Haberdashery to make up sewing kits and sort materials to go with the sewing machines.  


Volunteer with us
