Fraserburgh Cheque Centre is asking locals to donate old mobile phones to raise funds for the NSPCC.

Old mobile phone handsets that are broken, worthless and simply taking up room in drawers can be recycled, which is good for the environment and by using the drop off point at the Cheque Centre any funds realised will then be donated to the Cheque Centre’s chosen charity, the NSPCC and Childline.

Commenting about the latest fundraiser, branch manager Alistair Ritchie, told the Herald: “Brochers are very generous and last year their generousity helped the Fraserburgh branch achieve a top 10 spot.

“We are asking people to look out their old mobile phones and take them down to the drop off point in the store by the close of business on Thursday June 30.

“During this time we are still purchasing mobiles but would ask people to consider donating them instead and use our drop off point.

“After the cut off date we will be able to obtain a figure for the phones donated and hopefully realise quite a bit of cash which will then be donated to the NSPCC and Childline, the Cheque Centre’s chosen charity.”

Out of 226 nationwide Cheque Centre branches, the Broch Cheque Centre was one of the top ten fundraising branches last year and they hope that this year they can be in the top spot.

Phones can be dropped off at 10 Broad Street, Fraserburgh between 9am and 5.30pm up until Thursday, June 30.
