Mobile Phone Recycling

Mobile Phone Recycling

Pioneers of mobile phone Reuse & Recycling. CfC & RFC have over a decades great experience of collecting working and non working mobile phones thanks to a prompt from Mercedes Benz UK.

Our work and support remains dependent on donations of Computers and also reliable vehicles to collect and distribute equipment across the UK, then as far afield as Eastern Europe by road. As a small charity with limited funds, it remains a constant balancing act in managing resources.

However back then Mercedes Benz UK and the former Dixons group offered a real solution of converting donated mobile phones into Vans, plus the funds needed to keep the wheels turning, and the challenge continues.

Donors and Sponsors are welcome and urgently needed to aid this appeal. Simply by donating your old or broken mobile phone we can achieve this goal providing continuing support for Charities, disadvantaged Children, Orphanages, Schools and the Elderly.

Please help us to help them; Send them in, we need your phones now!!

its what we do!

Phones for Vans is ongoing, but could do so much more, if only we had sufficient vehicles to undertake the daily needs let alone the logistics required to get people and resources to where they are most needed

For many It's hard to imagine what real poverty is. However think of a young child lacking shoes, clothing even access to basic sanitation. Then daily having to beg for food in places where life is an exercise in survival, whilst  enduring a climate in winter with temperatures of -20C still with no shoes or heating and Summer 40C suffering the heat, dust and smell.

Sadly it's a picture we see to frequently and urgently need your help to change these situations.

Countries aided include: UK, Albania, Romania, Bulgaria, Serbia, Kosovo, etc

Vehicle Support includes;

Christmas Shoe box appeal for Older people & Children
Medical supplies for hospitals and clinics
Disability project support
Resources for schools
Humanitarian aid

Needed: Basic medical supplies, Children's football shirts, Audio recording and copying equipment, Braille items and equipment for the blind and Visually Impaired, plus financial support to get it there. (Thank you British Airways for your support in Albania)
