Townsfolk encouraged to donate items to charity collection
2:10pm Monday 24th September 2012 in News
GENEROUS townsfolk are being encouraged to donate items to a charity collection in Bromsgrove.
A collection of tools, bicycles and spare parts, sewing and knitting machines, cotton fabric and scissors, is being held this weekend.
Tools for carpentry, plumbing, motor mechanics, blacksmithing, metalwork and engineering, cobblers and upholstery are also needed.
The Collection for Africa is being run by All Saints Church, in Burcot Lane.
Items can be handed in this Saturday, September 29, between 10am-5pm, and this Sunday, between noon and 4pm.
The tools will be sent to Workaid, a charity which renovates tools and sends them to communities in Africa.
If possible, people are asked to make a small donation to the charity when they donate the items, to help pay towards the shipping costs.
For more details call Tessa Carrick on 01527 873135.
