Dave was a very interesting speaker, explaining how the charity supports communities in sub sahara Africa by sending them refurbished tools for a wide variety of trades. We liked the fact that the charity ( whose head quarters are in Southampton) has local links in the countries and this makes sure the tools are maintained. Dave was from the Clun branch of the charity where volunteers refurbish the tools, sewing machines and other useful items. The Tools for Self Reliance website will give you more information. At the end of the talk Cathy gave some new gardening tools to Dave ( these were donated by Jill Fieldhouse of Wigmore ) which will be sold to raise money for the charity. President Patrick then presented a cheque to Dave to support TFSR.
