Hospice of the Good Shepherd - Recycle stamps, empty ink cartridges, old Mobile telephones

Image may contain: 5 people
Recycling doesn't only help the environment but can raise vital funds for your local Hospice. Every year we raise £3000 from used stamps, empty ink cartridges, old mobile telephones, Foreign Currency and Broken/unwanted jewellery. We're sure we could raise more if we can spread the word. Please share that we have collection boxes in our charity shops and Hospice Reception.

Can you tell when there’s something phishy going on?

Protect yourself from scam emails, text messages and social media posts.

You know those emails that claim to be from your bank, government department, parcel service, phone company or even the police? They always instruct you to take some kind of action – normally urgently – and give you a link or attachment to click on. Then there are the text messages and social media posts advertising free offers and bargains that seem too good to be true.
