The Big Sort – Save your Christmas cards for Cobalt

Posted on

It's another bumper year for our Christmas card recycling collection  at Mears  Head office, Gloucester.

It may come as no surprise with the emergence of technology, instant messaging services and email we are still writing so many greeting cards.

Recycling cards is a really simple way of helping to put Christmas cards to a positive use after the festive season. The cards will be recycled, so less paper will end up in landfill.


We are delighted that due to this success we will be continuing to run a card recycling scheme ALL year!

Thank  you Linda Thomas from Cobalthealth for collecting the cards.

Cobalt was founded in 1964 by Dr Fred Hanna, who launched a public appeal along with other doctors at Cheltenham General Hospital to build a radiotherapy unit (Cobalt Unit) in Cheltenham, as the nearest at the time was 50 miles away in Bristol.

Each year Cobalt provides diagnostic imaging for over 65,000 patients at their Imaging Centres in Cheltenham and Birmingham and through their fleet of six mobile MRI scanners that travel throughout the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire, and beyond. They invests in equipment, research and education, to ensure everyone has access to the best medical imaging for their diagnosis.
