Currently top of the EFL League Two table, the Nailsworth-based green football club is encouraging fans to bring unwanted old mobile phones to their home fixture against Exeter City on December 29, 2021.
Donated devices can be dropped off in collection bins located at The New Lawn Stadium’s main entrance and will be safely recycled by Lister, with proceeds supporting the vital work of The Nelson Trust.
The charity provides residential addiction treatment to both men and women, and also supports women in the community who are in contact with the criminal justice system.
Simon Gardner, sales manager at Lister Unified Communications said: “With many people likely to be upgrading their smartphones this festive season, it seems an ideal time to donate your old device to be recycled.
“It will be a great way to end the year, turning something that has gone beyond its natural use into a real benefit for a local charity.
“We ensure all the data is securely wiped from any of the devices and the ones that can’t be reused are recycled in an environmentally friendly way.”
For those not attending the game, they can also donate old mobile phones by dropping them off at various collection points across the region. For more information, please visit https://nelsontrust.com/mobile-phone/.
Lister donated almost £500 shared between Gloucestershire Young Carers and adult learning charity Cintre last year.
