Tools with a Mission

Tools Wanted

Do you have any unwanted tools, ones you no longer need or use? Clearing a garage or sorting a shed? The Rotary Club of Nuneaton is working with the charity Tools with a Mission to collect unwanted hand tools and other items to be sent to developing countries in Africa. These can change lives, help people to help themselves and create livelihoods for the future.
If you have any items you would like to donate please contact: Graham on 07875 31994 - Collection of donations can be arranged. See more details on the attachment right ->>

A Call for Volunteers for the Social Group

If you feel you could help or would like to volunteer please contact Sue Quittenton.


Free Library Service

We have been contacted by the Warwickshire Library and Information Service concerning their Home Delivery Service which is a free library service for those who are unable to visit their local or mobile library due to ill health and infirmity.

Volunteers call every four weeks with a selection of books based on customer preferences and they can stay and have a little chat with them about books and interests (as well as a lot of other things probably).
There is a link to a promotional flyer for further information and we will be having some leaflets made available at our monthly meeting.
It is a worthy and useful service and I urge those who have trouble getting to the library regularly to contact them on
01926 851031 or online at Library Website or email Library Email

Please Note: This service is for Warwickshire residents only. If you are from another county, then you will probably find that your own county provides a similar service.
