Eight Bells for Mental Health needs your old gardening tools

Eight Bells for Mental Health is a local mental health charity based in Newbury with members from both West Berks and North Hampshire.

The charity runs a drop-in centre two days a week.  Some of the members have recently taken over an allotment, and are starting to grow vegetables. The members enjoy the peace and exercise, but have very few garden tools. It would be great if people could have a look in their garden sheds, as any unwanted forks, spades, watering cans, trowels would be gratefully received and put to good use.

An unwanted shed would be very much appreciated as well.

The drop-in centre operates on Mondays and Thursdays and can accept donations from 9.30am – 3.30pm at The Friends Meeting House, 1 Highfield Ave, Newbury RG14 5DS.
