Children and young people across Bracknell Forest will benefit from the work of the three latest good causes to receive a cash boost from the council’s recycling incentive scheme.
Youthline UK received £478 in the latest round of good causes funding run as part of Bracknell Forest Council’s recycling incentive scheme.
The money will be used to help the charity with its work providing free, confidential counselling services for young people in Bracknell Forest.
Collette Reynolds from Youthline said: “This donation will help our work to ensure young people from across Bracknell Forest have someone they can talk to in confidence about anything which may be concerning them. This extra funding will make a real difference to the people we work with.
“Thank you so much to all those residents who donated their points, not just to us but to all of the causes, and our thanks to Bracknell Forest Council and Suez for running this fantastic initiative.”
Cllr Mrs Dorothy Hayes MBE, executive member for the environment, said: “Each of the causes in this round of donations enhances the lives of young people in Bracknell Forest and I am delighted so many residents have donated to help that work.
“The incentive scheme is going from strength to strength with more than 13,000 people now signed up. The more people signed up and recycling correctly in turn helps the council reduce the costs it incurs for sending waste to landfill, freeing up money to be used elsewhere.
“If you have not donated points to any of the 27 causes featured in the scheme so far, I hope the next trio will be the ones to benefit from your generosity.”
