Ink Cartridges recycling for Kidney Research Yorkshire


NOW you can recycle laser and toner ink cartridges, and those old embarrassing mobile phones – and raise much needed funds for Kidney Research Yorkshire.


This is all thanks to our partnership with Recycle4Charity.  They pay more donations for more cartridges than anyone else in the UK!  It’s also completely FREE – both for you and for Kidney Research Yorkshire.

To register, just login here.  After registration, you will be directed to a page where you can request Freepost bags to return your cartridges and old phones to Recycle4Charity.

Please help Kidney Research Yorkshire raise more funds by supporting this new initiative

Kidney Research Yorkshire – Newsletter

Every six months, Kidney Research Yorkshire produces a Newsletter and sends it free of charge to 1000+ supporters, friends, researchers and fundraisers. Over 500 other people get the Newsletter sent to them electronically.  Usually it comes out in September and March.

The content of each edition varies, but it always contains details of fundraising activities over the previous six months, plans for the next six months as well as a layman’s update on much of the research that the Charity is supporting and funding.  It is a “must-read” for anybody interested in kidney disease, kidney research and fundraising – especially in Yorkshire.

If you don’t already subscribe to the Kidney Research Yorkshire Newsletter, just click on this link to be taken to an on-line sign-up page.
