Recycle for us

Throwing stuff away is something we’re all guilty of, but what may seem like rubbish to you, could actually help raise money for someone with blood cancer.

Recycling is incredibly easy, doesn’t require any planning and when combined in a group effort amongst friends, family and work colleagues, can have the opportunity to raise a lot of money and help us raise awareness of blood cancers.

Stamps

How many letters do you receive? Or how about cards or postcards? Everyone at some point whether it’s birthdays or Christmas, will receive envelopes through the post with used stamps.

Instead of throwing away your envelopes, why not take a minute to cut off the used stamps? Although it may seem like something small, by sending in these used stamps, you give us the chance to earn money back through recycling and help more people.

We receive £20 per kilogram of stamps, so the stamps that you could send, can really make a difference to a blood cancer patient’s life.

How to send in your stamps

You can request one of our pre-paid A4 envelopes. You can get these by contacting:

T: 01413 289 357

E: leukaemiacare@xchange-master.co.uk

Once you have received your envelope, complete the form sent with the envelope, place it in the envelope with your stamps and we will send you a letter of thanks and another envelope for future stamp recycling.

Alternatively, you can post your stamps directly to:

Xchange Masters Limited in aid of Leukaemia CARE
272 Bath Street
Glasgow
G2 4JR

Currency

Have you returned from your holiday with foreign currency you don’t want, or perhaps you’ve had foreign coins and notes lying around somewhere for quite some time now.

If you’re not going to use them again, why not donate them to us and you’ll be helping someone with blood cancer?

How to send your currency to us

You can request one of our pre-paid currency boxes. These are available by contacting:

T: 01413 289 357

E: leukaemiacare@xchange-master.co.uk

Once you have received your box, complete the form sent with the box, place it in the box with your currency and we will send you a letter of thanks and another box.

Alternatively, you can post your old unwanted currency to:

Xchange Masters Limited in aid of Leukaemia CARE
272 Bath Street
Glasgow
G2 4JR

Clothing

East London Textiles (ELT) carry out house-to-house collections on our behalf, meaning you’ll be able to recycle your unwanted clothes to help us in our mission to support people affected by blood cancer.

If you live in one of the areas that receives a collection bag, please feel free to fill it up with your old and unwanted clothes for them to be collected on the indicated day. If you aren’t in an area where there is currently a collection, but would like to donate old clothing, email fundraising@leukaemiacare.org.uk or call 01905 755 977 and we can try to arrange a collection for you.

Old Cars

We’ve teamed up with Giveacar to offer you an easy, hassle-free way to donate your vehicle, which is quickly turned into much-needed funds.

You can choose to donate all the money or half of it to us, and it doesn’t cost you a penny.

How it works

1. Contact Giveacar who will go through your details and arrange a convenient time to have your vehicle picked up.

2. Your car is picked up within three days to ten days.

3. Your car is sent to scrap or auction and the proceeds are donated to us.

Why donate your old car?

  • You’ve decided to stop driving
  • The car is surplus to your requirements
  • Your car is worth a significant amount and you want to see the money put to a good cause
  • You’re downsizing from two cars to one
