Tools with a Mission

  • 1 person is interested

The role of the driver is to drive one of the 3 TWAM vans around the East of England to collect loads of donated tools from TWAM collectors or members of the public who have large amounts to be donated. The role of the loader is to assist the driver with loading the tools onto the van and unloading at the relevant refurbishment centres.

Typical tasks may include

  • Driving one of the TWAM vans on a defined route to collection points
  • Helping load the van at the visits and with the loading and unloading of the van at the refurbishment centre
  • Carrying out relevant pre and post trip checks and recording in the journey log

You need to have a friendly and welcoming personality and be willing to spend long periods working alone (there will not always be a loader). You need to be a competent driver ideally with a clean licence (although some minor motoring offences may be acceptable) and we will normally ask a new driver to undergo a driving assessment. You need to enjoy driving and be happy to travel long distances. You need to be reasonably physically fit for either role as the loads of tools can be heavy.

Further details about this role and other volunteering roles we have available can be found on our dedicated volunteering website www.timefortwam.uk

Mission Statement

We do this because we want to support local people supporting their own communities through sustainable livelihood creating projects. We believe there is dignity through work and the ability to provide for yourself and your family. We believe entire communities can be transformed through training and the provision of tool kits and equipment. As a Christian Charity, we believe that God's heart reaches out to the poor and that He calls us to follow His example. Our motivation is to work with faith and non-faith based organisations to be a refuge for the poor, a safe place to find support, hope and dignity through the provision of tools and equipment

Description

The charitable work of Tools with a Mission is to collect unwanted tools, refurbish them, sort them into trade kits and send them across the world for livelihood creation. We send around 20 containers filled with over 300 tonnes of tools every year. To do this we rely on a national volunteer workforce and welcome people of all ages and abilities and of any faith and no faith
