Malawi Containers

Malawi Containers

Every year, a container lorry leaves Birmingham bound for Malawi, full of items such as books, children's clothing and stationary that Malawians need and that people across our parishes donate. 

The next container is to be loaded on 12 May 2018

  • The site for loading is Rye Farm, Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield, West Mids B76 9QA

Located through a bridge over which passes the Toll Road. Most people will access from J9 of the M42 known to some as the Dunton Roundabout. Taking the A446 (N’bound) towards Lichfield for about 300 yards to the bottom of the "hill" there is a sign to a cafe and Wishaw. Take the sliproad on the left signposted to Wishaw and pass under a bridge, the Farm is the first turning on the right. The A446 at this point is a dual carriageway narrowing to a single lane so anyone arriving from the Tamworth or Lichfield direction will need travel on to the Dunton roundabout and then turn back on themselves before being able to turn onto the sliproad.

The cost per cubic foot remains £6. We shall put up the cost when we have to!

Will people who wish to use this container please contact Judith Grubb: or 01527 457789

The proprietors of a mobile canteen have volunteered to come for the day. Please use their facilities!
