Mobile phones can be recycled to help charity

Most nights approximately 500 people will be sleeping on the streets of England. Another 50,000 will sleep in homeless hostels.
London homeless charity, Broadway, has launched a new campaign to encourage people to donate their old mobile phones to help charities such as Broadway.
The campaign ‘Home for Phones’ will give a min of £3 to the charity for every phone it receives. It is estimated that there are 80 million unused phones in the UK alone so there is a huge potential to raise significant amounts of funds.
Rebecca Sycamore, Broadway’s Director of Fundraising and Marketing, said, “The money raised from the campaign will help fund our work with homeless people in London, helping them to find and keep a home and supporting them into training and work. As well as donated phones we also looking for commercial sponsors, so if anyone would like to get involved in the campaign we’d love to hear from them.”
The charity has also launched a photo competition of what comes into your mind when some says ‘home’. For more information about the charity and the competition please visit their website Alternatively they can be found on facebook.
