PEOPLE are being urged to recycle their old mobile phones and print cartridges in a bid to fight cancer.

Big C, the Norwich-based cancer charity, has team up with RPC of Rackheath to produce new recycling boxes to encourage more people to recycle the items.

The boxes can be sent to offices and will be in Big C's five charity shops in Castle Meadow and Timberhill, Norwich, Beccles, Yarmouth and Sheringham.

Sharon Hulbert, PR and corporate fundraising relations manager for the charity, said: “This is a really simple way of local people supporting us in the fight against cancer. You can have these boxes delivered to your place of work or any other central location. Many of us have old mobile phones sitting in cupboards gathering dust, so here is a way to really make a positive difference.”

All money raised will be used to benefit local people in Norfolk & Waveney affected by cancer.

To request a recycling box, call Sharon on 01603 619900 or email sharon.hulbert@big-c.co.uk. For more information on the charity, visit www.big-c.co.uk
