Your old mobiles could help cancer charity

  • Comment

It occurred to me recently that many of your readers will have an old mobile phone or printer cartridge tucked away in a drawer at home or at work. What they may not realise is that their unwanted items can benefit the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation.

Old mobiles and empty printer cartridges can be recycled, and the proceeds will be used to help fund vital research into the early detection, diagnosis and treatment of lung cancer, as well as providing support for sufferers and their families. With 38,000 new cases of lung cancer being diagnosed each year and 80 per cent of those diagnosed not surviving longer than 12 months, lung cancer is the biggest cancer killer in the UK.

Recycling is environmentally friendly too (mobile phones and printer cartridges take hundreds of years to biodegrade), so you can both help the Earth and support a very worthwhile cause.

Please help us continue our vital work with lung cancer sufferers and their families by donating old printer cartridges and mobile phones from home and work.

For more details just call 08712 50 50 50, visit our website www.

recyclingappeal. com/roycastle, or simply drop your unwanted items in the post to: Roy Castle Recycling Appeal (EL), 31-37 Etna Road, Falkirk FK2 9EG.

Janine Drew, fund-raising manager, Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation
