Collection raising funds for church organ
Don't throw out your waste - donate it to the church instead.
That's the message from supporters of St Thomas in Hanwell, http://www.thomashanwell.org.uk/ trying to raise money to repair the church organ built over 100 years ago.
It will cost £150,000 to restore the organ to it's former glory and so far £17,500 has been collected.
As part of the efforts to raise more funds local residents are collecting a variety of waste products usually thrown away, these include:
They can all be recycled though a local company called Terracycle http://www.terracycle.co.uk
So far £200 has been raised this way and organiser Pauline Britton is convinced that this figure can be increased.
''This is a collection that the community could join in, the collecting boxes are in the church which is open during the day and also there is a collection box in the hall that has groups meeting most evenings.''
