New partnership to help raise funds for charity via cartridge and mobile phone collection.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation aims to “grant magical wishes to children and young people fighting life-threatening conditions” and was established in 1896. Since its inception, the charity has successfully granted over 7,800 wishes.
The charity receives no government support or lottery grants, and relies entirely on donations from the public.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation will receive a donation for each cartridge and mobile phone collected that can be successfully recycled. The Recycling Factory can operate the scheme at no cost to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, with all recycling materials including freepost envelopes and collection boxes supplies free of charge.
Donna Wingfield, Business Development Manager, The Recycling Factory, commented: “We are thrilled to work in partnership with Make-A-Wish Foundation. We hope that the money raised by the recycling scheme will enable many more magical wishes to be granted.”
