Canford Heath Win on Waste Saturday 17 March

Donations were received from 68 people at Canford Heath Win on Waste on Saturday 17 March including 41 bags of plastic.  12 good causes will benefit from all the items.  As the Coffee House Cafe is closing at Easter it was also a sad occasion as we have used the Cafe for Win on Waste sessions ever since we ran the first one in 2014.  Hayley and Simon and cafe staff have looked after us so well and we wish them all the best for the future.  Next month Canford Heath Library have kindly agreed to host us.

Record number of donations at Canford Heath Win on Waste 14 October

We received donations from 89 people at Canford Heath Win on Waste on Saturday 14 October.  Particular thanks to Canford Heath Scouts for all their donations.  All items are helping 10 good causes.  Bags of Newspapers/magazines/junk mail were top of the list – all 24 of them!  Second place went to milk bottle tops with 14 bags.

This photo proves that all ages can get involved in Win on Waste sessions and the second one shows just how many ‘mountains’ of bags we collected.
