Recycling Programme Supports Butterfly Appeal

A Derby charity is appealing for anyone who has a new mobile phone for Christmas to donate their old handset for recycling.

Sinfin-based Century Mobile is collecting old mobile phone handsets which are then recycled and all money collected is donated to local child sexual exploitation (CSE) specialist charity Safe and Sound.

Money raised will go to the charity’s Butterfly Appeal to raise funds needed to expand its work to transform the lives of children and young people in the county who are victims of or at risk of CSE.

Safe and Sound CEO Tracy Harrison said:

“We have had a great response so far to the appeal and we really hope that this will really gather pace in the New Year - particularly when people receive new phones as Christmas gifts.

“By simply donating an old, unused handset, we can raise vital funds for the Butterfly Appeal to help us to support even more young people who are vulnerable to or currently facing sexual exploitation.

“CSE not only affects the children and young people targeted by perpetrators but their whole family and the Butterfly Appeal will enable us to support them as well as providing the vital education across the wider public to make them aware of the dangers facing our local communities.”

To recycle your old phones to raise money for Safe and Sound, please telephone 01332 362120 to arrange collection.
