Tools for Self Reliance speak at Biggleswade RC
David Moore speaks about his voluntary work
The Biggleswade Rotary Club hosted a presentation by David Moore who
spoke on the voluntary work he and others do in collecting "hand
tools" from everywhere. These are taken to the Tools for Self Reliance
Organisation which has a branch in Milton Keynes. From there they are sent to
the TFSR/local Authority workshops for renovation and restoration back to possibly
better than new. These tools are then sent to developing countries and given to
Trades people to develop small businesses/trades.
Brief description follows:-

Supporting Adults with special needs and Artisans in the developing world
We provide community and supported living for adults with a range of learning abilities and disabilities. Here at Camphill Milton Keynes Communities we have houses at our Willen and Pennyland sites but we also work with people who live outside of our community
At Camphill Milton Keynes Communities we run a varied program of workshops designed to teach new skills and provide valuable work and life experiences all in a fully supported environment.
