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!!
