18.11.21 – Electrical Recycling Campaign, The guild Hall, Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership, Christmas Community Gift Appeal

Written by on 17 November 2021

Residents in Staffordshire are being urged to give their unwanted broken electronic devices a new lease of life.

Staffordshire County Council have launched their latest recycling campaign to help keep electronic and electrical items in use for longer.

The council has teamed up with prisons HMP Featherstone and HMP Brinsford who will be repairing and PAT testing any small broken electronic waste, to sell on to raise money for charities and other great causes.  People can drop off their items at any of the county’s 14 Household Waste Recycling Centres.

Further details on the project and what items can be accepted are available on the Staffordshire Government website.

An iconic building in Newcastle town centre has reopened its doors to the public following a refurbishment.

Residents, shoppers and visitors are once again accessing services from the historic Guildhall now that remodelling works are complete.

The Guildhall is currently managed by Support Staffordshire, a county-wide voluntary sector organisation, and ‘The Friends of the Guildhall’ are responsible for staffing and letting out the main reception area.

One of Staffordshire’s largest Christmas gift appeals hopes for some festive magic as it launches its 10th year.

The Christmas Community Gift Appeal is a partnership between Aspire Housing, Tesco and Stoke City Community Trust which collects thousands of toys and games every year for local children’s charities across Staffordshire and Cheshire.

The appeal invites people to purchase a small toy or gift, which should be brand new and unwrapped, and then donate it to the appeal via one of the collection points placed in the entrance in Tesco stores, whether or not you are a Tesco shopper.

The Christmas Community Gift Appeal has collected more than 100,000 toys for local children since it launched in 2011, and collected over 13,000 toys last year even during the height of the pandemic, with donations going to 26 charities for local children.
