The team at Specsavers Southend have been doing their bit for charity while also protecting the environment by getting involved in the ‘Reclaim it’ recycling scheme with Little Havens Hospice.

Effective scheme

The store has been donating all their used printer cartridges to the Little Haven Hospice who are then able to recycle the items to raise vital funds. The store have already raised £80 through the simple yet effective scheme which supports Little Havens Hospice to provide care and support for children with life-limiting illnesses and their families.

Fantastic charity

Store director, Stephen Kirby, said: ‘I am really proud of the team for their efforts in supporting such a fantastic charity. As a business, we are always looking for ways in which we can cut our carbon footprint and protect our environment and to find a scheme which allows us to do this while supporting the efforts of a local charity like Little Havens is a real bonus.'

Make every day count

Little Havens is a part of the Havens Hospices which strives to make every day count for those children and patients who are suffering from terminal illnesses.
