Anyone with unwanted garden hand tools can drop them into Stroud Valleys Project Eco Shop in Threadneedle Street to be sold to support the charity.

 SVP director of projects, Clare Mahdiyone, explained: “We set up the eco shop to raise money to help run Stroud Valleys Project and we are always looking for new ways to increase donations and help local people at the same time.

 “Now the shop is up and running we have decided to start a scheme to help first time gardeners or those on a low incomes so that they can come and buy cheap garden tools such as forks, rakes and spades- so we are asking anyone with spare or unwanted hand tools, but not anything electrical, to donate them to us.”

The environmental charity set up the SVP Eco Shop as a not-for-profit social enterprise in May and has just completed its first two months trading. The shop sells organic, Fair Trade and recycled goods with a focus on wildlife and gardening.

“We work with people to help the environment,” said Clare “So selling secondhand garden tools is a natural extension of the charity’s core work. We run all kinds of courses to introduce people to nature and to how look after important green spaces in their neighbourhood.”
