Get your mo­bile phone re­cy­cled

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Un­wanted cell­phones might be tech­no­log­i­cal trash to many but they are lifesaving trea­sures to Star­ship chil­dren’s hospi­tal.

The Star­ship Foun­da­tion has raised an im­pres­sive $2 mil­lion so far from more than 650,000 phones that have been do­nated to the Star­ship Mo­bile Phone Ap­peal since the cam­paign launched four years ago.

The $2m mile­stone was cel­e­brated at Star­ship last week with Prime Min­is­ter John Key, who do­nated the first phone in Fe­bru­ary 2009 and do­nated an­other phone to start the ball rolling to­wards the next $2m.

The money helps fund the Star­ship Na­tional Air Am­bu­lance Ser­vice which flies med­i­cal ex­perts to life-threat­en­ing emer­gen­cies around the coun­try.

Wanted: Isa­iah Mor­rell, 21, is wanted on dis­hon­esty charges and for breach­ing his com­mu­nity work or­der. He is Maori, 1.81 me­tres tall, and of fat build.
