Updated: Mar 10

At our meeting on the 8th March two York Rotarians talked about York Rotary projects.

Tools with a Mission – Firstly Roger Sutton talked about support for Tools with a Mission.  Roger is collecting surplus tools and those will be sent to Tools with a Mission and via that route they will be assembled into tool kits prior to being sent abroad.  The kits are being used for apprenticeship training.  Kits are being assembled to cover the following disciplines:

·         Mechanics (Garage/Motor/Cycle)

·         Electrical

·         Plumbing

·         Joinery/carpentry

Roger will be collecting tools until the end of April.  For more details of the requirements click here or contact Roger Sutton 07790 596658
