Step on the GAS this Christmas! Save old gadgets and stamps for BARKS

There's a purrfect way to recycle stuff and raise funds for BARKS this Christmas and throughout 2021 - recycle your old gadgets and stamps and give them to us.

Our GAS (Gadgets & Stamps) appeal invites you to let us have your old mobile phones, cameras and small gadgets, plus old currency, jewellery and stamps - and we can recycle them in return for payment.

If they're broken, no problem - we can still recycle them. If they're still working you may want to give us permission to sell them on instead and we can raise more that way.

Just think, all those new gadgets are coming you way on 25 December and now you have the ideal way to make good use of the old models you're getting rid of: save them up and, when Covid restrictions allow, deliver them to our Bodicote rescue centre - or email us and we'll try to arrange a collection.

The full list of what we can take is:
- mobile phones, cameras (digital or old film), video cameras, MP3 players, ipods, tablets, game consoles, games and accessories

- stamps and first day covers, presentation pack, British and international

- old coins and notes, defunct foreign currency

- unwanted gold and silver, including damaged items, watches, jewellery (metal and costume).

Sorry - we can't take used ink or toner cartridges, nor old monitors or keyboards.
