Tools with a Mission is a growing charity with ambitious plans.  We collect unwanted usable tools from across the UK, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them to the developing world for livelihood creation.  We send 18-20 containers of tools every year and look to double this over the next five years.  The Office Manager is key to the success of this plan.
