Charity Tool Amnesty

Starting this Saturday the local Wyevale Garden Centre will be starting their 'charity tool amnesty', in an effort to get local people to trade in their old and broken gardening tools.
The idea of the amnesty is that unwanted gardening tools will be put to good use by being donated to help schoolchildren and community groups with their gardening projects. However, not everyone is just going to give up tools they already use for their own gardening, so as an incentive Wyevale are offering 20% off vouchers on a number of gardening tool ranges - the idea being that local gardeners, groups and business all benefit from the amnesty.
That being said, don't turn up with any old thing and expect to get your vouchers. The initiative only applies to tools like trowels, spades, garden forks, rakes etc. No power tools allowed! If you're confused on just what constitutes a power tool then just ask yourself if it's powered by electricity or petrol - if it is then it's not going to qualify.
So, if you're interested in participating in the charity tool amnesty you can visit Wyevale's Thornbury branch between 9am and 6pm this Saturday. Of course if this weekend is not good for you there is plenty of time until the amnesty's closing date of Sunday the 28th of February.
