Money to Schools at UK Aware 09

This year Money to Schools is attending the UK Aware show at London's Kensington Olympia 2 on the 17th & 18th April. We are very proud to be a part of this project which aims to show how modern life and low carbon living can work together.

Brian Hogan from Money to Schools says that "educating people on how to reduce, reuse and recycle is key to providing both ourselves and future generations with a better chance to fight global warming. Money to Schools fit's in perfectly with that ethos and whilst helping to protect the environment schools can also earn themselves some much needed cash for every recyclable printer cartridge and mobile phone they send in for recycling".

We are offering 3 lucky people the chance to visit the show with a friend by winning a pair of tickets valid for one day's entrance. This competition is open to registered members of Money to Schools and parents and pupils of registered schools.
