Radio Derby helps publicise our Recycling Event on 21st January 2017


We had a hugely successful day in The Octagon Shopping Centre.  The people of Burton-on-Trent generously donated:-

200 pairs of spectacles

63 mobile phones

200+ ink cartridges

12 sacks full of bras

6 sacks full of knitting wool

President Diane  Buxton and club member Sue Nickson were interviewed on Radio Derby on Thursday 19th January to publicize the event.  Presenter Andy Twigg was very interested to hear why we wanted bras to be donated!

We also had a very good piece in the Burton Mail which can be accessed at http://www.burtonmail.co.uk/bin-your-bras-as-burton-recycling-centre-is-launched-for-charity/story-30044786-detail/story.html

So a big thank you to all who helped before and on the day, the very welcoming staff at The Octagon, Radio Derby and the Burton Mail!!
