Why not help Carers Careline raise valuable funds by recycling your used printer cartridges (most printer cartridges are acceptable).

All you need to do is to save your empty cartridges then give us a call on 01527 66177 and we will arrange to collect them from local businesses, alternatively you can drop them off at our office in the Ecumenical Centre, 6 Evesham Walk, Redditch any time between 9.00—2.00 Monday to Thursday.

We will then send them off to Ink2Cash who will donate up to £4.00 for each empty cartridge.  Ink2Cash can also recycle your old mobile phones for donations to Carers Careline as well.  For more information please visit carers-careline.ink2cash.co.uk.

We are aiming to raise £££s to help support unpaid carers in Redditch by asking supporters to sign up to easyfundraising.org.uk for free to help boost our fundraising.

It would be great if the local community could support us by registering with Easyfundraising to do all their online shopping.  What is wonderful about Easyfundraising is that it is absolutely free to us as a charity and our supporters and is a very quick and simple way to raise funds; it doesn’t cost you a penny more and as well as making those necessary purchases you will also be helping to support a very worthwhile local cause.

It is simple to register just visit www.easyfundraising.org.uk and then log on to your account. Whenever you shop through the site with any of the 2,700 retailers listed on easyfundraising.org.uk, including Amazon, John Lewis, M&S, Argos, Asda, Tesco, eBay, Ticketmaster, Expedia and many more, the retailer will give a small percentage of what’s been spent back to the good cause to say thank you for shopping with them.
