    TFSR Cymru is a local charity. This is how they decribe themselves on their web site and to my mind it is a great project and worth supporting. They sell unrequired tools to raise money to send the required tools to Africa.

    TOOLS FOR SELF RELIANCE groups collect old and unwanted hand tools from all over the UK. Our volunteers clean repair and sharpen them, and send tool kits to grass roots community groups in several African countries. TFSR CYMRU presently concentrates it's efforts in Tanzania where we work with our long-standing partner SIDO  The Small Industries Development Organisation.

    TFSR Cymru are a bunch of about 70 volunteers, men and women aged 14 to 85. We meet at one of several sessions a week in our workshop, where we repair and renovate hand tools by the thousand. The tools are donated by individuals or collected by a wide variety of other organisations from across Wales  Rotary Clubs, Schools, WI groups, Church groups. We have been very successful at collecting but we still have a shortage of certain items, especially tools for blacksmiths

    Suggest you visit them if you are in town, or if you have spare time, then volunteer  its fun!
