PRINTER CARTRIDGES

We have registered with this recycling charity who will take used Inkjet Cartridges for recycling.

Each Cartridge recycled will raise £1

Only the main printer manufacturers' cartidges will be accepted - eg HP, Dell, Lexmark, Canon etc.

They will not accept 'store' brands - eg Tesco, PC World etc.

They will also not accept cartridges which have been refilled already.

MOBILE PHONES

They will also accept Mobile Phones for recycling.
These are sold at auction so prices will vary.
We will receive 50% of money raised. (the rest goes on admin etc)

There will now be a box in the Foyer in which you can put the above items. The box goes away when we have reached 25 cartridges.

The collection is FREE and the money is paid directly into the Church Account.

SO, LET'S GET RECYCLING FOR OUR CHURCH!

   Guild Logo

The Guild is an organisation within the Church of Scotland

Locally we meet fortnightly in the afternoon from October to March

Nationally there is a structure which provides a framework for us

The overall theme within a three year cycle is

‘Be bold, Be strong,

Go in joy, go in peace, go in love.’

During the three year cycle there are six interesting projects for which we raise money

Although open to men, our group consists of ladies who enjoy fellowship and a range of interesting speakers - with the inevitable cup of tea and home baking

We look forward to our opening meeting in October when our minister Jane will explore the theme ‘Go in Love’.
At the second meeting we will have a speaker from one of our projects - Caring for Mother Earth. Millions of Bolivians are struggling to survive in one of the poorest countries in the world. So far £72,215.44 has been raised towards providing solar powered ovens. Help is also given towards their use.
We look forward to a visit to our link Guild in Coatbridge for a Wedding Festival  - nostalgia with the promise of wedding cake!

Please contact Mrs Margaret Tindall for further information
