The Footprint Trust has a large tool store that is free to use for any insured community group, member of the IW Pond Wardens or IW Green Gym.
If you need some hand tools, give us a call on 822282 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org
Good quality hand tools can be donated to us, those not suitable will be passed onto other charities and schools.
Thanks to a £5,000 award from Awards for All, The Footprint Trust has been able to upgrade the range and number of tools that we can offer community groups for loan.
There are now more spades, more loppers, more bowsaws, more hammers, more slashers, shears and rakes than ever before! If you are planning a community event but don’t have the necessary tools, give us a call.
Groups to benefit include the IW Green Gym, Cemetery and Pond Wardens, as well as schools, residents associations, village groups and work parties. Basically, any group that undertakes conservation work and needs to use some tools can benefit.
