About the event
*Please note: we will have a 1 hour break for lunch from 12:30-13:30. There may not be anyone available to assist you during this time, so please avoid it if possible*
We have an ambitious plan to double in size by 2025 and send even more livelihood-creating tools to skills centres in Africa. This year, we plan to send a total of 22 containers, filled with nearly 500 tonnes of refurbished tools, to Africa. Now, more than ever, we need volunteers to help us with every step of the process. Whether you give half a day per week, or even multiple days, your support will have a huge impact. We would love for you to join us in working towards our ambitious goals. Our work is mostly done by volunteers, and we have a team of over 400 volunteers helping us out across England and Wales.
This event will include:
- Tours of the Refurbishment Centre, a chance to see all the sections and what tool kits they are responsible for
- Discussions with our members of staff and volunteers to give you an idea of what it's like to volunteer with TWAM
- Tea, coffee, cakes, and other refreshments!
