Midlands Refurbishment Centre

We've got big news!  We'll be moving to new premises in 2022 and becoming the biggest TWAM centre in the UK!  So we've got loads of volunteer opportunities.

Centre Manager: Ian Schoolar

Phone: 07719 634131    
Email: midlands@twam.uk       

Address: 8 Lifford Way, Binley, Coventry, CV3 2RN

 

Opening times: Monday to Friday 9.30am - 3.30pm  

We're a busy Refurbishment Centre operating out of two adjacent units and with our own van.  We collect from across the Midlands, the North of England and Wales.  We're never short of tools to sort and refurbish!  We're a great team of volunteers who work well together and support each other.  We have a laugh while we're working.

We specialise in refurbishing sewing machines, assembling carpentry kits and sorting haberdashery, but we can put our hands to most things.  We have a break area and provide tea, coffee, biscuits and sometime people bring in cakes.  We like people who bring in cakes!  Anyone can use any mug or glass and you can keep drinks cold in the fridge.  Everyone shares in washing up.  We've plenty of parking outside the units.

If you want to find out what we do and what you could do to help, please give us a ring or just pop in.  It would be great to see you.

"I retired and becoming tired of daytime TV needed something to do.  I saw an advertisement looking for volunteers and so I started one day a week and as I got into it and enjoyed it increased the amount of time I was volunteering."

"I relished the opportunity to support a Christian Charity working in the developing world in a practical way, rather than just giving money and using my passion for DIY and woodwork."
