Birmingham City University Recycles for Charity
Working with SE Recycling to dispose of their unwanted and redundant IT equipment, Birmingham City University have raised another donation of £928.51 for Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid (BSWA).
Over the last 2 years Birmingham City University (BCU) have working in partnership with SE Recycling to recycle all their redundant and unwanted IT and electrical equipment. In the wake of the pandemic BCU have shown their commitment to creating a sustainable future for all and have been able to raise a combined total of £2,962.96 for BSWA.
For over 40 years Birmingham and Solihull Women’s Aid has provided front-line domestic violence and abuse support services to women and children in the Birmingham and Solihull area. The North West charity supports every woman & child’s right not to live in fear of violence or abuse and to do so is a violation of their human rights and continues to work toward a future for all women in which inequality, violence and abuse are no longer tolerated.
Anna Fawcett, Income Generation & Corporate Relationships Manager for BSWA said: “We’re so proud to work with Birmingham City University as one of their chosen charities, and receiving funding from a recycling scheme which also benefits the environment is such a fantastic initiative.
This funding will support our work provide life-changing and life-changing services to women and children in our area who are experiencing domestic abuse, whether that’s offering interpreting for a woman who isn’t confident speaking in English so that she can make herself understood, or providing activities for children in refuge to alleviate some of the trauma they have been through – we’re grateful for every penny raised via SER and BCU and want to thank them both for their support.”
SE Recycling’s IT Collections Manager, Simon Chow commented: “For the past 4 years SE Recycling has worked with like-minded organisations to turn unwanted, redundant IT equipment into sustainable funds for charity.
Birmingham City University have demonstrated how much of a positive impact recycling can have, not only on the environment but the local community too.”
