Tool Aid Ringwood.
We now have a landline, with answerphone, in our workshop with the telephone number 01425 473968. And we also have a new email address.
Tool Aid Ringwood (TAR) takes in tools and other items to refurbish. These are sent via other charities, which have arrangements in place to create sustainable businesses in some of the poorest areas of the world.
We initially set up in 2007 as the Ringwood Group of Tools for Self Reliance (TFSR), a charity based near Southampton. TFSR have been sending refurbished tools to Africa since 1979.
We became a charity in our own right in 2014, adopting the name Ringwood TFSR.
However, the close geographical location of the two charities was potentially confusing, so, in January 2015, we became Tool Aid Ringwood.
We also broadened our links to include other charities with similar aims to TFSR but covering a wider spectrum of tools, and countries in which they function.
Our workshop is at Unit 10c, Forest Corner Farm, Hangersley, Ringwood BH24 3JW
Opening hours: 9.30am to 12.30pm Monday to Friday (except Bank Holidays).
Neighbours on both sides will accept items or they can be left in front of the door.
