Appeal for old mobiles by Hove hospice
7:40am Friday 15th February 2013 in News
People are being encouraged to donate their unwanted mobile phones to help raise funds for charity.
The Martlets Hospice Mobile Phone Recycling Scheme collects and sells unwanted mobiles to help developing countries that do not have landline telephone infrastructure.
The scheme has mobile phone collection points at every Martlets shop across Sussex, plus at 16 different local primary schools.
It’s hoped that UK landfill waste will also be reduced once the phones are put forward for recycling.
If you would like to take part in the scheme, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a fundraising kit, or visit www.forgotten mobile.com/martlets-hospice for further information.
