A CHURCH collected hundreds of unused tools to help people in poor countries.
Stamford Free Church in Kesteven Road appealed for people to donate tools instead of fruit and vegetables during its harvest festival.
The tools will be refurbished as part of the Tools with a Mission charity and sent to countries like Uganda and Nigeria.
The items donated included hand tools and garden items.
John Chambers, from Stamford Free Church, said: “We were absolutely delighted with the response and would like to thank all those who contributed.”
