I recently found an envelope in the draw for recyling ink cartridges and sent some back, and thought what other fundraising ways are there. From recent mags etc:

 Recycling scheme for old ink cartridges (not laser or Epson) and mobile phones contact Lizzie at EAH Recyling on 01473 658161 for freepost envelopes

 LMS/BR Group collects aluminium tins and foil please leave at Bridgnorth station

 West Bromwich Building Society offers a variable rate account, only available at branches, to supporters. A 0.5% bonus is paid to Severn Valley Railway each year based on average balance held in all accounts. Benefits include upgrades to 1st class from 3rd class and 10% discount on goods totalling 7 or over from the railway gift shop. See www.westbrom.co.uk/westbrom/savings.product?id=186 or a leaflet from a branch for details.

 NFU Mutual supports the SVR. It offers home, travel, car and caravan insurance, pensions and investments. Call 0800 197 1283 or visit www.nfumutual.co.uk/svr.

 By using www.easysearch.org.uk/ as your search engine and www.easyfundraising.org.uk/ to buy online you can register for donations to go to SVR Rolling Stock Trust or GWR (SVR) Association.

Any more of which you are aware?

From the Friends of 4930 Hagley Hall website:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recycle your used mobile phone and printer cartridges and help 'Hagley Hall'

'The Friends of Locomotive 4930 'Hagley Hall' are now participating in a mobile phone recycling scheme, with an established company. This provides a 2 donation to our funds for each mobile they receive, irrespective of its age, condition, or whether or not it works. Post paid envelopes are supplied.

In addition, the company can also accept used HP, Lexmark, Canon BC01, BC02, BC05 and Dell printer cartridges, which raise up to 1 each. (Please note that Epson, Brothers and Xerox cartridges cannot be recycled). Again a supply of post paid envelopes is available.

So please check your cupboards for any surplus handsets and used cartridges, and drop them off at our sales stand on Gala weekends. Alternatively ask one of the committee for an envelope, or leave us your name, address and a description of the items you wish to submit through the contact email on this site.

Many thanks in anticipation.

The SVR envelope says up to 6. Room for SVR and 4930 Friends to work together?

I understand that the SVR Rolling Stock Trust has struck up a fundraising deal with a power supplier with a donation to The SVRRST by getting a quote? Its not on the SVRRST site, can anyone post up a link?

As it was mentioned at the start of this thread, I'll ask here. Does anyone know if any of the groups on the railway still collect aluminium foil?

I think Patrick was correct in saying that Bridgnorth C&W do.

I asked at the LMS & BR Coach Fund sales coach today, and they have only recently stopped collecting aluminium foil because the scrap price is now too low to make it worth their while. If there are any other groups that still do collect foil then it would be useful to have the details, although I suspect the same may apply.

I understand the 813 Fund collect aluminium cans to weigh in - although I could be wrong. Whether this includes foil, I don't know.
