We recently partnered with SE Recycling (S E R) to raise £340 for Teenage Cancer Trust via recycling our redundant ICT equipment.
S E R is one of the largest IT recycling and data destruction companies in the North West, and organised the collection of our redundant IT and electrical equipment, ensuring nothing went to landfill. Once the collection of our ICT equipment was complete, S E R and Teenage Cancer Trust were invited to our Manchester office to discuss how the donation will help the charity support young people facing cancer.
Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to improving the quality of life and chances of survival for young cancer patients aged 13-24. Their world-leading care and support puts young people in the best possible place, physically, mentally and emotionally, for their cancer treatment and beyond. The charity funds specialist units in NHS hospitals and provides dedicated staff, bringing young people together so they can be treated by teenage cancer experts in the best place for them.
During the visit, Emma Cross, North West Regional Fundraiser at Teenage Cancer Trust highlighted the huge impact donations have on an individual, and that even the smallest amount can make a difference.
Emma said: “Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words “you have cancer”. We are dedicated to ensuring every young person facing cancer is given specialised emotional care and support. Cancer can throw young people’s lives into chaos. Even for those who recover, it can have a lasting impact on their future."
"The donation from Rullion could fund over 11 hours of specialised nursing care provided to young people in the North-West. We are delighted to have this support from Rullion” - Emma Cross, Teenage Cancer Trust
SE Recycling’s Collection’s Manager, Simon Chow said: “Thanks to the partnership with Rullion, we are able to help support this life-changing charity and hope that through this, more businesses can follow in Rullion’s footsteps.”
Matthew Hart, Finance director at Rullion said: “We are very proud to donate funds to such a great cause like Teenage Cancer Trust. Rullion has a strong passion for supporting charities and the environment and so were delighted when we found out we could raise funds for Teenage Cancer Trust by recycling our old IT equipment.”
