Refurbishment Champion

Championing tool reuse, championing great places to volunteer, championing lives transformed.

 

Our Refurbishment Champions are full of passion and enthusiasm, tackling any task that is needed in the refurbishment process. They are flexible and willing to help out where needed and support all the tasks of our busy centres. Our champions save hundreds of tonnes of tools from landfills and help us support our green credentials and sustainability, transforming thousands of lives across Africa with their livelihood-creating tools.

There are three key roles:

Tool Specialist: when the tools arrive on the TWAM van or from the general public, these key volunteers identify the tools that we can use to change lives and the tools that we need to find another home for.

 

Tool Champion: they take the tools that we can use and through some basic TLC, give them another chance to be used and loved. A tool can be anything from a hammer to a sewing machine.

 

Toolkit Creator: they put together the life-transforming kits, from a small sewing kit to an entire mechanics workshop kit.

 

Together, we champion flexible exciting volunteer roles that support environmental responsibility and life-transforming, long-term, livelihood-sustaining projects across Africa.

Locations

Ipswich, Suffolk, Coventry, West Midlands and Halstead, Essex.

Time commitment

It would be really helpful if you volunteered regularly, ideally on an agreed day(s) every week, although due to the nature of the role, it would be great if you had some flexibility
