From April 2013 Quills have donated 100% of the funds raised from its toner recycling program to charity partner BIRT (Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust), which is part of a national charity, The Disabilities Trust, www.thedtgroup.org. BIRT has been providing excellence in brain injury rehabilitation for 25 years.
The amount received for a toner cartridge can vary from as little as 5p to as much as £5.00, but every penny really does count. Funds raised to date have gone towards raised flower beds for the gardening club members at the Kerwin Court BIRT Center in Horsham.
We are delighted to confirm that the total funds donated have now reached over £1,000 as of 1st July 2015 and we would like to say a huge thank you to all of our customers who have been taking the time to recycle their used toner cartridges.
Ann Buckler, Director of BIRT, expressed her gratitude: “ I would like to thank the team at Quills Group for making BIRT their charity partner and for their efforts which have raised over £1,000 for Kerwin Court. The donation has enabled the centre to buy raised flower beds for our gardening club. These have been invaluable in encouraging this enthusiastic group and have enhanced the lives of those we support.”
