Tools for Self Reliance

"Tools for Self Reliance is a rarity amongst charities – our work genuinely transforms lives. Every tool we send, every new skill learnt, means a person, a family, a community, benefits. And that means every penny we raise will help transform a life."

Tools for Self Reliance bring an incredible array of tools and equipment to the 'Bodgers Ball' in the form of a massive stall that's on site and open over the Ball weekend. Each sale they make puts reused, vintage and refurbished tools into the hands of our members and any money made goes back to towards their charitable objectives, its a truly symbiotic relationship and the APTGW is proud to have them join us at the Bodger Ball.

Go to their home page or check out their email store for more.
