The award winning bus company is recycling old phones for charity.

Everybody has an old mobile phone lying around gathering dust at the back of a drawer or cupboard somewhere.

Lothian Buses are asking their staff and passengers to donate their old mobile phones so they can be recycled to raise money for the company’s Charity of the Year, It’s Good 2 Give. Mobile phones left on the company’s buses that have been unclaimed after a month will also be recycled for the charity.

It’s Good 2 Give is a local based charity offering support to young people with cancer and their families.  Their aim is to raise £1 million to fund the build of a purpose-built respite house for young people and their families affected by cancer.

Phones can be handed into any of Lothian Buses Travelshops, located at Waverley Bridge, Hanover Street, Shandwick Place and Jarnac Court, Dalkeith.

Lynne McNicoll, Co-founder of It’s Good 2 Give said:-“This is a brilliant way to raise money for the charity – we are delighted and will be encouraging our supporters to hand in their old phones to Lothian Buses offices.” Lynne is photographed above launching the new It’s Good 2 Give bus which you can see around the city.

Ian Craig, Managing Director, Lothian Buses said:-“Recycling old mobile phones is an easy way for everyone to get involved in helping our Charity of the Year, It’s Good 2 Give.  I will be looking out my old phone.”
