We recently partnered up with the National Gardening Scheme to show tools at the Guilsborough Open Gardens event in Northamptonshire. This introduced us to a whole new audience – and lots of donations! If any other gardens would like to invite us along to show and collect donations, please do so using the contact details below.

On Saturday 8th June, we are having an open day at our workshop. Here, our service users will help tell the story of how we recycle our tools. We source our tools from local people, which creates opportunities to learn new skills, and raise money through their sale. We hope lots of people come along and grab themselves a lovingly restored garden tool.

Thanks as well to all those who are responding to our recent appeals for tools – lots have come in, but we need more! Email office@northamptonhopecentre.org.uk or ring 08455199371 for more information.
