Support anti-cancer appeal fund by recycling your Christmas cards at Moreto
Cotswold District Council’s Moreton Area Centre is once again inviting residents to recycle their old Christmas cards and benefit a leading local charity.
Staff at the MAC will be collecting old cards at their High Street office in Moreton from Wednesday 3rd January 2013 up to and including Monday 14th January 2013, and will then take them to the Cobalt Appeal Fund in Cheltenham. The charity – which raises money to fight cancer and other serious illnesses – recycles and refurbishes the cards for re-sale to the public.
Moreton Area Centre Manager Sally Graff said:
We’ve been recycling Christmas cards for the Cobalt charity over a few years now - many people have told us how good it is to know that their donations of old cards will help combat cancer. I believe the Cobalt Appeal raises over £40,000 each year from this recycling venture so it really is very worthwhile."
The Cobalt Appeal Fund is based in Thirlestaine Road, Cheltenham and has been going since 1964. It receives support from public and private donations and various fundraising activities. Please visit their website at http://www.cobalthealth.co.uk for more information on the charity and its work.
