Recycle your jewellery
In 2012 we launched our first jewellery recycling campaign, with
75% of the profits raised going to Parkinson's UK.
We sent out jewellery recycling envelopes in our magazine,
The Parkinson, and from just one mailing
you've already raised more than £3,000! Thank you for raising a
fantastic amount to help people with Parkinson's.
We recycle everything from gold and silver to costume jewellery,
watches and even broken or damaged items such as odd earrings and
snapped chains. Please send any unwanted jewellery to the free post
To order jewellery recycling envelopes, boxes or for more
information email firstname.lastname@example.org
or call 0800 633 5323.
It would be great to find as many partners as possible to raise
the profile of this new campaign. If you have any connections with
local jewellers or companies who you think might be willing to
display our jewellery recycling envelopes on shop counters, please
don't hesitate to contact us on the details below.
