How to donate tools

We are very happy to receive tools dropped off between 9.00am and 4.00pm Monday to Friday.  Wherever possible please box them up for ease of unloading.  If you are dropping off more than a boot full we would ask you to ring and make an appointment to avoid overcrowding or clashing with a van delivery. Please ring 01473 210220 during the above opening hours to arrange a drop off.  Thank you.

Alternatively please check who your nearest collector is here

What we do

The Rugby Refurbishment Centre was opened in 2022 as part of TWAM's ambitious 5-year strategic plan to double in size.  The centre will be able to send the same number of containers as our Ipswich headquarters - that's 16 containers full of tools every year.

To achieve this ambitious plan, we need more volunteers! Find out more about volunteering at our Rugby centre below:

Rugby covers the northern half of the UK, undertaking a large number of van journeys each year, covering Carlisle to Weston Super Mare. Volunteer drivers from Rugby put in many miles for TWAM collecting from our collectors.

We have around 20 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

We are looking for volunteers to join us at the refurbishment centre to help with a wide variety of tasks.  Please visit our dedicated volunteer website for details:

Rugby opened in August 2022 and is our newest and largest Refurbishment Centre.  If you would like to read the 'journey of the building', a talk given by Mike Griffin, our CEO at the Dedication and Commissioning service on 4th September 2022 you can download it here.
