Housewares industry charity the Rainy Day Trust (RDT) is appealing for more old mobiles and printer cartridges for recycling to raise funds for its beneficiaries.
So, if you have any unwanted mobile phones or ink cartridges, consider donating them to RDT, who can turn them into cash for the charity – as well as helping you look after the environment.
To enable the Rainy Day Trust to recycle, post the items to The Rainy Day Trust, Federation House, 10 Vyse Street, Birmingham, B18 6LT.
RDT is the only charity which exists solely to help people who have worked in the UK’s home improvement and enhancement industry. It merged with the Pottery and Glass Trades Benevolent Fund in 2012 and it had has given away more than £1.1m to beneficiaries aged from 47 to 103.
To qualify for financial assistance from the Rainy Day Trust, applicants must have worked in the relevant industry sector for a minimum of five years during their careers. This can be in any capacity, from retail to distribution to manufacture.
