Money helps pay the bills
Making a donation is one of the best ways to show your support.
Either through one-off or a regular recurring donations.
The Protector & Champion memberships offer additional funding - both adding extra to our standard Advocate subscription - helping to provide memberships for those on benefits, or low income and supporting the project in general.
All money raised is used to run all the necessary functions of the project helping to secure the success and future of The Tool Library and Workshop.
Old tools get a new lease of life
We can make use of old tools. Either in The Tool Library or the Workshop
We can repair, reuse or repurpose them.
Parts may get recycled and some tools may be renovated and sold at fairs or other future events to raise funds.
Becoming a member is one thing, but Volunteering takes things up a gear, donating your time and sharing your skills helps the project, our members and the community flourish.
Volunteering is fun, it connects social ties, binds the community and can help build & develop new skills.

Thank you for your continued support
A special thank you goes out to everyone who supported our initial crowdfunding campaign - this helped to kick things off and whilst it seems such a long time ago, but without that initial support we wouldn't be here - so thank you, far too many names to mention but you know who you are.
We are also proud to have support from the following organisations.
