The recycling scheme provides an easy and cost-free way for people to show their support.”

Also commenting on the partnership, Lin Sharp, Head of Major Donors and Partnerships, said: “Nepal is a land of immense beauty, it is also one of desperate hardship and remains one of the poorest nations on earth. That is why this new recycling partnership with The Recycling Factory will make a difference in helping The Gurkha Welfare Trust raise the funds to achieve its aim of providing financial, medical and community aid to almost 8,000 welfare pensioners and their dependents”.
