Community Champion

About Tools with a Misson

We collect donated tools from across the UK, refurbish them, pack them into trade kits, and send them to African skills centres for livelihood creation. We have a team of over 400 volunteers nationwide and 6 members of staff helping us every step of the way. We want to send 1 million tools to Africa every year, and we need your help to do this. Join TWAM's Paul Daley on Zoom to find out more about what roles are available and how you can be an essential part of our mission.


The main role of a Community Champion is to help raise support in their community for TWAM. This will mean organising events (or finding people to organise them) such as coffee mornings, quiz nights, open gardens and all sorts of creative ways to fundraise. It means keeping an eye on what is going on in the community and perhaps finding people to enter sponsored events such as fun runs, 10Ks, walks for TWAM. It will include working with our other volunteers to arrange events such as TWAM evenings with coffee and cake or a buffet. Community Fundraisers need to be people with big ideas and the energetic enthusiasm to see them through


What will you be doing? 

You will work within your local community, Church, or community group to promote TWAM and help raise the funds we need to keep the tools flowing. You will organise events of all kinds or find others to do them for you, from music nights to traditional coffee mornings. You’ll get pull-up banners, leaflets, resources and loads of support from everyone at TWAM from the Volunteering Coordinator and the Fundraising and Communications Officer to your local TWAM Tool Ambassadors and Community Ambassadors. Overall, you’ll be telling everyone how great TWAM is are and why we need their support


What difference will you make?

We always need people to collect tools and refurbish them, but without the funds to run our vans and keep our Refurbishment Centres operating, nothing would happen. Shipping to Africa costs a lot of money and again, we need the funds to do it. This is why the Community Champion is so important, and this is the difference you will make, because nothing happens without the people willing to ask for the funds to run the charity.
