My name is Alex I have been working with WeeeCharity from the start. We have been going for just over 6 Months. I was unemployed and 19 at the time and I was the first ever volunteer too. We are a charity that recycles unwanted electrical and electronic equipment to relieve poverty and deprivation across the North West. Now I’ve been employed by WeeeCharity and have the opportunity to invest and sow into our volunteers, most are unemployed or are faced with disability and learning difficulties. I get to watch them break out their shell and grow in confidence and self worth. We provide 8 week training courses to equip them with knowledge and new skills to give them a better future and a better chance of getting into paid employment. We offer work experience to local colleges like Warrington Collegiate allowing them to get a feel for a safe working environment that allows us to invest and equip them and to grow in confidence and skill. We also refurbish and rebuild electrical equipment for resale back into the community. The money we generate is put in a pot that we use to invest into the community with projects, fundraisers and community events. To allow us to improve community cohesion.
We have supported schools across Warrington with 4,200 USB sticks to allow their students to do their homework and improve their education and also to help parents that might struggle to afford them. We donated 150 Easter Eggs to three local community groups to help relive them financially this Easter. Mid Orford Kids Activities who provide trips and events during the school holidays. Mid Orford Saturday Socials who host a number of different nightly events like bingo and sowing etc, and Radley Common Community Centre who help support the elderly some are faced with dementia and Alzheimer who are extremely vulnerable by treating them to 3 meals a day a numerous activities to keep them busy. We also cover the cost of rent every month for these community groups so that they can make the most of their work by not having to worry about the funds.
Your generous donations of waste electrical equipment help us to equip our volunteer teams with knowledge and skills about recycling efficiently. Some of your donation will go to the repair and maintenance team that refurbish and test the equipment so that it’s safe to use and is then sold on to the community.
