We thoroughly recommend helping the people in Rigul, we certainly get a lot of satisfaction. It involves a lot of team work, as well as being a social get together, and lots of fun with various activities.

Yes, we want your old ink cartridges and mobile phones which will then be recycled and so prevent yet more rubbish and landfill and earn money for Rigul Trust poverty relief projects!
Over 50 million ink cartridges per year are thrown away in the UK and end up in land fill sites where they will take over a 1,000 years to decompose. In the UK alone an estimated 15 million mobile phones are discarded every year and over 100 million are hoarded as they still have a monetary value.
