Sense, which raises money for deafblind children and adults in the UK, has doubled the amount of money raised from partnering with The Recycling Factory in 2013, with 90 more charity shops now “actively part of the scheme”, which sees used cartridges and mobile phones collected by the recycler and money given to the charity in return.
Sense was established from a family support group started in 1955, with specialist services offered across the UK aiming to help deafblind people “live their lives to the full”. The charity and recycler noted that their partnership “continues to go from strength to strength”, with The Recycling Factory also recently celebrating success raising money for the Royal National Lifeboat Association (RNLI) and beginning a new charity partnership with military veterans’ organisation Combat Stress.
The Recycling Factory added: “[We are[ confident that with continued support, the scheme can gain even more momentum for 2014. The scheme is nationwide and 100 percent of each item’s value is donated directly to the charity. The service is completely free of charge and is a fantastic way of helping to raise vital funds whilst helping the environment at the same time.”
