to give a dog a bone!
Our Dogs has teamed up with The Guide Dogs for the Blind Association for a new fundraising campaign called Mobiles for Mobility urging everyone to donate their old mobile phone to raise funds for the charity.
For every mobile phone recycled, Guide Dogs gets £3.50 to help support its vital work in bringing independence and freedom to visually impaired people. Each phone can be simply put into a Freepost envelope and posted, remembering to remove the phones Sim card first.
Battery chargers should not be included.
Our Dogs will be helping the charity promote the scheme throughout the Autumn as part of a new partnership between the two organisations.
Robin Hutchinson, Head of Communications, for Guide Dogs, explains:
"A lot of people have got old mobile phones lurking in their house so this is a great way to help raise funds for Guide Dogs. There are two very good reasons for recycling your mobile by doing so you are raising sufficient money to feed a guide dog for five days, whilst sparring the environment the harmful effects of adding your phone to the growing number in landfill sites.
"We are really excited that Our Dogs have agreed to help promote the Mobile for Mobility Recycling Scheme and we look forward to working with them in the future."
