Approx. 240 kg of new & unused screws, nails, nuts, bolts & other fixings donated by Cabinz Cic & SAHBN to the charity Tools with a Mission for their low income recipients in the Uk & Third World


Thanks to the Ipswich TWAM team for a quick reply & the Chichester volunteers for their collection. 

Also, a big thankyou to our volunteers for sorting and storing the fixings

We hope to work closer with charities & community groups that distribute tools to help build shelters for people , animals,  food & possessions 

Thank you again to local business TIMCO for the supply of high quality fixings. They are of great use to charities, community groups and small makers
