What we do

Halstead takes tools from all over the UK via deliveries from the Ipswich Refurbishment Centre. Tools are refurbished and made up into mechanic and plumber kits.  Halstead makes up the majority of mechanics kits for TWAM using a team of 12 volunteers including Ron, Jane, Rod, Richard, Ray, Len, Glyn, Colin, Brian and Steph.  Halstead is managed by Geoff.  Their work speed is legendary, 20-30 mechanic and 10 plumber kits every fortnight! The kits are then sent back to Ipswich for shipment.
