Your rubbish can help us flourish by turning trash into cash #recycling #mobilephones #money #jewellery

I know when tidying I find old items that seem a waste to throw away, would be unsellable by a charity and are no longer of any use to me (early signs of hoarding…?).  I come across odd earrings; broken necklaces; old jewellery; old phones; coins and notes from various countries and so on.  Before I was unsure what to do with them (and they went into a box to think about later), but now I can take them into the office and pop them into our recycling box here in fundraising, safe in the knowledge that they are going to a good cause.

Here at Wirral Hospice St John’s we are able to raise money through recycling an ever increasing amount of unwanted items. We are looking to raise more money than ever before through our new recycling boxes which can be found at the Hospice and at any of our charity shops.


So when you’ve had a tidy you can now donate:

  •  Jewellery – gold, silver, costume jewellery, watches, broken and damaged items, like odd earrings or snapped chains.
  •  Unwanted currency – old and new, UK and foreign banknotes and coins, including all pre Euro notes that are now worthless to the public.
  • Gadgets – mobile phones, iPods, laptops, sat navs, games consoles, games, tablets, cameras and video cameras – even if these are old and damaged.

If you would like to help us recycle more than ever before then please pop into one of our local charity shops or into the Hospice and pop your jewellery, unwanted currency and gadgets into one our recycling boxes!
