Haberdashery

RE-USE

Haberdashery can be re-used through Workaid, including thread, wool (particularly thin ply wool), hooks & eyes, press studs, scissors, measuring tapes, thimbles and lightweight fabrics.

Workaid tackles poverty in developing countries by supplying disadvantaged people with the tools they need to earn a living.  

They collect unwanted items from all over the UK, repair them and send them to vocational training projects, mostly in East Africa.  They have an efficient network of 100 volunteers who co-ordinate tools collections. 

So if you have any haberdashery to donate, please phone 01494 775220 or email admin@workaid.org and you will be put in touch with your nearest area organiser.
