Christmas cards turned into cash for Ely Foodbank

Wed, 03/02/2016


This week, it was announced that 2015’s Christmas Card Campaign saw 1.2 tonnes of cards converted into much needed cash for Ely Foodbank.

The money, which proves it pays to recycle, was raised after Ellgia Recycling teamed up with East Cambridgeshire District Council to create collection points at Ely, Littleport and Witchford, where residents could drop off Christmas cards for recycling, as well as any food they wished to donate.
