Joy and reunion during the 30th Anniversary of TFS

Many friends, former volunteers and supporters came along to the 30th anniversary celebrations of Tools For Solidarity, who are all part of our big and beloved Tools Family.

During our five day programme of activities we had thought provoking development events including interactive workshops, an extremely amusing pub quiz with well thought out questions, a treasure hunt and last but not least, a highly anticipated bash with a fantastic line-up of local bands and entertainers, including Tim McGarry and Terri Hooley.

The Open Day was the highlight of the celebrations. John gave a heart-stirring speach and afterwards a couple of friends of TFS also took the stand to share some unforgettable stories about their experiences in the organisation. We had a splendid lunch with homemade dishes and after we played some entertaining yet quite tricky games.

It is difficult to put into words how grateful we are to everyone who attended our special celebrations (many of whom travelled great distances to be with us) and for their kind and supportive words and deeds. We were over the moon to get you folks together to help celebrate 30 years of Tools for Solidarity and all that has been achieved during that time. We could not have made it through these thirty years without all the help and support that we have received. Hopefully we will meet up at the same place for the same reason in 5 years time.
