The Gurkha Welfare Trust partners with The Recycling Factory to raise funds

– National charity enters into new recycling partnership –

The Recycling Factory is delighted to announce that it has entered into a new partnership with
The Gurkha Welfare Trust (GWT) to recycle inkjet cartridges, toners and mobile phones to help raise vital funds for the charity.

The aim of the GWT is to relieve poverty and distress amongst Gurkha veterans and their dependants. The charity provides financial, medical and community aid to alleviate hardship and distress among Gurkha ex-servicemen who once fought bravely and proudly for the British Crown.

Donna Wingfield, Business Development Manager for The Recycling Factory, said: “We are proud to be working in partnership with The Gurkha Welfare Trust and look forward to helping make a real difference to the lives of Gurkha ex-servicemen and their dependants both in Nepal and the UK. The recycling scheme provides an easy and cost-free way for people to show their support.”

Lin Sharp, Head of Major Donors and Partnership, said: “Nepal is a land of immense beauty, it is also one of desperate hardship and remains one of the poorest nations on earth. That is why this new recycling partnership with TRF will make a difference in helping The Gurkha Welfare Trust raise the funds to achieve its aim of providing financial, medical and community aid to almost 8,000 welfare pensioners and their dependents”.

Through the recycling scheme, supporters can send their empty inkjet cartridges, toner cartridges mobile phones and electronic gadgets, and the GWT will receive a donation for each item that can be successfully recycled. There is no cost to the charity for The Recycling Factory to operate the scheme; all recycling materials such as freepost envelopes and collection boxes are supplied completely free of charge.

Getting involved couldn’t be easier. To request your freepost envelopes and start recycling for the GWT, simply contact The Recycling Factory on 0800 091 0696, email or visit
