A Wall of Tools

We can’t do it without you!

As we continue to help communities recover from the pandemic, tackle the climate emergency, and cope with the cost-of-living crisis, we want to thank all the Tooligans out there who continue to support us by donating time, energy and funds who are helping us build a better future!

Support Us 1

A great way to support the environmental and community work we do is to make a monthly or one-off donation, both are vital to our work.

It could be as simple as having one less pint a month and setting up a £5 donation to us instead!

Or when you pay for your membership, you could pay an extra £10 forward to provide a membership for someone else, or donate a one-off amount of whatever you can afford.

However you swing it, swing it our way if you can, every penny you donate will count towards our charitable work.

Gift A Membership

Support Us 2

Gift cards are always available for purchase online here. They start at £20 and can be used towards membership and/or any classes.

We believe they are the ideal fun, practical, and environmentally friendly gift. Perfect for someone who likes to improve their home, a friend who’s been wanting to get into DIY-ing more, or someone you know who just likes to try new things and will be inspired by our workshops.

Reward Your Team

Support Us 3

Do you and a group of friends want to learn to make together? Perhaps you’d like to infuse a little camaraderie into the workplace with a team building workshop? Or maybe you would like to reward your colleagues for their outstanding contribution?

Whatever the occasion, we offer a 2–3 hour private woodworking class tailored to suit your needs. Each participant will go home with a useful object that they make, and the memory of a unique and amazing day!

We can teach you how:

to make a tool box, 6-pack caddy, a simple stool, milk crate, mini shelf, wooden bowl or anything else that you tell us you want to try!

Contact us to find out more.

Adopt a Tool

Support Us 4

Whether it’s your way of giving back, a gift for a tool-loving companion, or a present for your team or office, please consider adopting your very own tool. Our tool family are a friendly bunch – Douglas the Mower, Dorothy the Chop Saw or Robert the Drill to name but a few!

Once you choose the tool you want to adopt and a donation plan that suits you – we offer monthly payments from £5 – your very own tool will send you regular updates on the difference your support has made to the communities they support.

Corporate Support

Building a Better Future

Support Us 6

When you donate to us, we use your donations to help communities build a better future. Through active engagement with communities who have been disproportionally affected by the pandemic and are living in poverty, or at risk of living in poverty as the cost-of-living crisis unfolds, we are helping to reduce poverty through social and climate action.

Our projects provide communities with the networks, confidence, knowledge, expertise (and tools) to affordably retrofit their homes, reduce household bills, share everyday resources, build community resilience and improve well-being, life and employment prospects.
