What Tools can you Donate?

We rely wholly on your unwanted tools and equipment donations and accept a very wide range even if they are vintage or antique. General hand tools are fantastic whether carpentry, horticultural, electrical and engineering but bigger machines such as welding and milling machines are welcome. Knitting and sewing machines and general haberdashery items are in high demand. Click the Accepted Items image below for a complete list.

Proof is in our success stories. Sammy aged 18 completed a course in Electrical Installation and was able to use the tools donated by Workaid to the Ebusiralo Polytechnic. Beatrice, a disabled mum from Zambia, trained in tailoring using our donated sewing machines and has gone on to run her own business and become a trainer herself.

Additional Accepted/Not Accepted Items – October 2020

We are in need of the following:

  • Manual sewing machines
  • Garden petrol and electrical equipment (lawnmowers, hedge trimmers etc.)

At the moment we are not accepting:

  • Electric garden strimmers
  • Bedlinen & curtains

When you can Donate?

Donations can only be received at our workshop in Chesham, Monday to Friday, between 10am and 4pm. Please note, we may stop receiving donations at any time if the volume of donations from our generous donors reaches a level that is difficult to manage. Please contact us before your journey to ensure that we are accepting donations. Click here for information on our response to COVID-19 and how we handle donations.
