LITTLE Downham man Ray Pritchard has been at the centre of a campaign to collect almost 500 phones for recycling in aid of our HoH Appeal.
Mobile phones and printer cartridges can be recycled, earning as much as £3 per item for the hospice, and Mr Pritchard launched a 1,001 mobile phone campaign in February to get hold of as many as he can.
"The phones have literally been pouring in from all directions, and we really can't thank people enough," he said.
"The appeal has touched the hearts of all."

He said he wished to thank all of the organisations that had stepped in and offered to act as collection points for the handsets, including a number of local churches.
"The reach of the campaign has been extended by the vigorous coverage in the Ely Standard - I thank the editor and staff for their efforts."
