Jim Durrant’s story
On hearing about Tools I applied for a place. Despite having no use in my left arm I was accepted and made welcome by the workshop supervisor and his team. They went out of their way to make it possible for me to carry out some useful renovation work.
The atmosphere in the workshop is very friendly with plenty of banter and micky taking, football is a common topic.
Carer : Leaving Jim at Clare Street each week means I have a few hours to spend as I like (in the garden weather permitting). It is also good to know that he is meeting new people and enjoying away from me.
