Recycling for charity

A talk by Steve Pattenden

'Today we were taught a lesson on how to recycle and make money for charity. Steve Pattenden from the #RotaryClubofLutonSomaries gave us a very interesting talk on how to convert household waste and unwanted goods into cash. They have been gathering pens, spray cans, aerosol triggers, glass jars, spent coffee pods and of course, foreign or old coins and notes. In two years they have seen the activity grow tenfold from a couple of hundred pounds. The participation of the public has been 'snowballing' and the project is becoming a major fundraiser. Here Steve is seen challenging our President David Bevan to a smiling contest.'
