The quantity of cans we are collecting is now greater than our small baler can efficiently handle and we have had to resort to selling uncrushed cans, which means a drop in revenue.

We urgently need a new, semi-automatic can baler, which will cost £16,000. We have written to companies and individuals asking for donations to help us reach this target and the response has been gratifying. Contributions have so far been received from as far afield as Russia, New Zealand and the Czech Republic, as well as Cyprus.

To date we have over £4,500. Grateful thanks to the following (in alphabetical order) for their support:
