Cards go back to their roots

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Notice To Benefits Claimants -

Shop­pers are be­ing en­cour­aged to re­cy­cle their old Christ­mas cards at Sains­bury’s Ash­ford By­brook store.

Peo­ple have un­til next Tues­day to de­posit their cards in a col­lec­tion box sit­u­ated at the front of the Si­mone Weil Av­enue store.

They will be re­cy­cled by Sains­bury’s, who will make a dona­tion to the For­est Stew­ard­ship Coun­cil (FSC) based on the vol­ume of cards col­lected.

Last year Sains­bury’s do­nated al­most £9,000 to help the FSC with its work to pro­mote re­spon­si­ble man­age­ment of the world’s forests.

Ash­ford store man­ager John Webb said: “We had a re­ally pos­i­tive re­sponse from our cus­tomers last year and with their help, we’re hop­ing to make an even big­ger con­tri­bu­tion this time. It’s a great way to con­tinue that good­will feel­ing and en­sure your cards are put to pos­i­tive use.”
