On behalf of Redeem, the mobile phone and printer cartridge recycling company, I would like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has given their support to our recent Tsunami Recycling Appeal.
Your readers have helped us to raise over £5000 for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Tsunami Earthquake Appeal. Over 100 companies and more than 1900 individuals helped out with the appeal.
We asked the public to send us their old mobile phones and empty printer cartridges to be recycled – and in return we pledged to give money to the DEC. We are delighted with the response so far, with our total currently standing at £4 300 – and as a company deeply committed to its charity work, we have contributed a further £700.
This money will go to areas affected by the disaster via the DEC’s member agencies, with the
DEC ensuring it reaches those who need it most.
The Disasters Emergency Committee is appealing for outstanding donations to be banked, so if you requested a freepost bag to donate a mobile or cartridge, please try to return it as soon as possible.
Although the Tsunami Recycling Appeal is coming to a close, there’s still plenty of opportunity to help charity and the environment through recycling. Why not recycle to raise funds for one of our other partner charities? Many of the UK’s charities felt an impact on their funds when public attention was diverted to the tsunami disaster – so now’s your chance to help them out.
Our partners include Marie Curie Cancer Care, Royal National Institute of the Blind, Children’s Hospice Association Scotland, Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, Northern Ireland Hospice Care and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
Whether you want to make a one-off mobile phone or cartridge donation, or you want to make regular donations from your workplace (which we collect free), we’d be delighted to hear from you. All you have to do is visit www. recyclingappeal.com and choose a charity, or call 08712 50 50 50.
Thank you once again for your support.
