Do you have any spare garden tools?

Have you got any garden tools to donate? 

The Ealing Cardiac Group (ECG) was founded 5 years ago by volunteers when the NHS withdrew funding to provide supervised exercise classes for those in the area who had had heart interventions. 

The classes have proved successful in maintaining members fitness and wellbeing and membership has since increased fivefold. ECG recently acquired half of an allotment on the Haslemere site to extend the opportunities for heart patients to improve their wellbeing especially those who cannot necessarily participate in an exercise programme. 

ECG now needs basic garden tools and would welcome any of the following donations: Spade/shovel, garden fork, hand trowel/fork, secateurs, branch saw, garden sieve, miniature pickaxe (mattock), hoe, rake, watering cans, canes or anything else that experienced gardeners feel we may need.
