OLD garden and household tools were collected by members of the Churches Together organisation in Wellingborough to be sent to people in Sierre Leone.

These volunteers from the group are pictured on their way to work during a recent collection. The tools will be sent to the African country to be used by people in communities as part of a collection being co-ordinated by Christian Aid in partnership with the Methodist Church.

A spokesman for the Wellingborough group said: “The partnership of the Methodist Church and Christian Aid has meant that in small rural communities, still reeling from the destruction of the civil war, the women have been instrumental in setting up co-operatives, raising money through farming methods, and build a school.
