have learnt a trade with the tools Workaid has donated.
Tools and equipment are collected from all over the UK. These donated tools are refurbished by a team of dedicated volunteers in the Workaid workshop. They are then sent to vocational training projects, in Africa and the UK. The Workaid Charity shop in The Old Boot Factory at 71 Townsend Road Chesham HP5 2AA is open Thursday,Friday and Saturday 10am-4pm.
