THE Rotary Club of Thame is asking residents to check their sheds and lofts and donate their old tools for charity.

Every year the Rotary Club of Thame runs a collection point for unwanted tools.

This year, the event will be held in the main car park in Thame near the Market House, Montesson Square on Saturday, May 12 between 9am and 2pm.

These are then taken to Tools for Self Reliance near Southampton, which is a charity which refurbishes the tools and sends them to NGO’s in Africa.

Rotarian Erroll Bateman said: “The Rotary Club of Thame would like to encourage everyone to check their garages and lofts and bring their unwanted items to us to give the craftsmen in Africa a chance to put their skills to good use for the benefit of their community as we believe it is a worthy cause.”
