With the launch of the 2020 Festival, W.Bro Howard Lewis of the Jubilee Lodge and Chapter No. 8822 has come up with an effortless idea to raise funds for the Festival.
Over the past several years Howard has been collecting used/unused ink jet cartridges and unwanted mobile phones which are destined for the waste bin.
By recycling these he has raised substantial funds for Charities.
Beneficiaries have been the RMBI and more recently St Luke’s Hospice where £1,294.55 was raised in just over a year.
Our Masonic Centres have made arrangements with Howard to collect unwanted ink jet cartridges and mobile phones and forward onto the charity, which will turn these into cash.
Only HP, Canon, Dell and Lexmark ink jet cartridges can be accepted. (sadly NO Toner cartridges or Epson ink jets).
Kindly just put them in a bag, ensuring that they do not leak, and mark them for the attention of Howard Lewis, Festival 2020 Appeal, bring them along to your meeting/Loi’s and leave them with the bar staff.
It’s as simple as that!
