Used printer cartridges coin in cash for St Margaret’s Hospice

AN office supplies company has presented St Margarets Somerset Hospice with £500 thanks to recycling used printer cartridges.

Used inkjet cartridge collection boxes have been placed in offices right across the county and since Ilminster-based Samson Office Supplies joined forces with St Margarets back in June, used and unwanted cartridges have coined in the cash for the charity.

Samsons Dan Batten said: We and our customers are delighted to be helping St Margarets by raising funds for them.

Our toner and inkjet cartridge recycling scheme not only helps raise vital funds for the hospice, but also reduces the amount of cartridges sent to landfill.

St Margarets fundraiser, Teresa Wort, added: We are extremely grateful that Samson Office Supplies have chosen to donate the funds raised from their cartridge recycling scheme directly to St. Margarets.

Thank you also to all the local businesses that have shown their support by participating in the scheme
