We are a Christian charity that collects unwanted usable tools, refurbishes them, sorts them into trade tool kits and sends them to the developing world for livelihood creation. In doing so, we also support UK communities through volunteering opportunities and contribute significantly to environmental sustainability by reducing waste and carbon emissions in the UK.
Kesgrave is well served by recycling banks for glass bottles and jars; textiles (clothing), household linen, shoes and bags; plastic bags and packaging; batteries.
