LEADING recycling provider, Bryson Recycling has given a welcomed boost to the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice thanks to its annual ‘£1 a tonne’ campaign.
The successful charity campaign, now in its 8 Hospice and the funds will go towards giving specialist care to local children, young people and their families.
The ‘£1 a tonne’ campaign is an innovative approach to encourage homeowners to recycle more everyday items. For every tonne recycled through Bryson’s kerbside box collection, £1 is donated to a worthwhile cause.
“We want to thank everyone across our collection areas who recycled during this year’s campaign and raised £6,000.
Just £30 can offer an hour’s respite and care with the team at the Children’s Hospice. It is encouraging that even in the current climate people continue to support local charities providing Essential services to families here,” says Claire McCallum from Bryson Recycling.
The Hospice provides specialist nursing care for 250 life limited children, young people and their families each year at its centres in Newtownabbey and Killadeas in Fermanagh.
Ellen Hillen, Corporate Fundraising Manager from the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice added:
“We are delighted with the valuable support received from Bryson Recycling this year. Every penny from the ‘£1 a tonne’ campaign donated to NICH will enable NI Children’s Hospice to continue to provide much needed specialist nursing care to the very special children and their families that we support.”
