PEOPLE in Bridgwater are being invited to de-clutter their sheds and donate their old and unwanted tools to a garden centre in the area.
Monkton Elm Garden & Pet Centre near Bridgwater is running its Tools Shed programme and is reminding people to drop in their tools for the cause.
Steve Searle, manager at Monkton Heathfield, said: “We've decided to keep our Tools Shed programme running as it has been extremely popular in the past and lots of worthy causes have benefitted from it.
“The programme is run in conjunction with The Conservation Foundation.
“We collect the tools and then they are picked up by the foundation and repaired in a number of UK prisons.
“Once they have been refurbished we will call for people to put their schools or organisations forward to receive some for free.”
The garden centre is accepting most manual tools including trowels, spades, hand and garden forks, hoes, good old-fashioned garden rakes and lawn rakes, but not electric or petrol-driven tools cannot be accepted.
