Chillisauce Recycles their Tech for Charity
London based event management specialists Chillisauce have raised a total of £409.80 for Greater Manchester’s St Ann’s Hospice.
Teaming up with SE Recycling (SER), one of the UK’s largest IT disposal companies, the event management specialists were able to recycle all their unwanted and redundant IT and electronic equipment. In doing so they were able to maximise the value of each redundant device whilst simultaneously preventing any material reaching landfill.
Using the funds raised through their sustainable efforts, Chillisauce chose to donate to St Ann’s Hospice. The charity supports patients from right across Greater Manchester and parts of Cheshire from its sites in Heald Green and Little Hulton, as well as a range of community and outreach services.
The charity runs fundraising events and activities, has shops across Greater Manchester and online, and its very own hospice lottery.
Gary Mo, Managing Director at SE Recycling said: “At SE Recycling we strive to work with like-minded businesses who want to have a sustainable impact not just on the environment but the local community. Chillisauce is one of these businesses and we are very proud to able to have helped them raise funds for such a great charity like St Ann’s Hospice.
To be sustainable you must focus not just on the environmental impact but the economic and social impact too and this is why we are so pleased to see Chillisauce’s recycling actions continue to have an impact well after the initial recycling process.”
Rachel McMillan, Chief Executive of St Ann’s Hospice, said: “As a charity we have to fundraise around £20,000 a day to keep our services running for local people and those closest to them, and that has been especially challenging during the pandemic when our staff have been working hard on the frontline.
“We’re really grateful to Chillisauce and SE Recycling for their kind support. Every penny donated really does make a difference to the lives of the people we support, so huge thanks to everyone involved.”
