Collection boxes

Even in these days of credit cards and online transfers, small change can still make a real difference.

Give these discrete cardboard boxes to friends and neighbours and see how many miles of pennies you can collect between you all. Or perhaps set one up as a swear box where you work.

You can order collection boxes via Helen Hyland, see below.


Do you buy anything online? Groceries? Clothes? Furniture? Holidays? If so, you’re not alone – over a fifth of all retail sales in UK are now made online.

If you start your online shopping by going via the easyfundraising website, the ME Association could benefit from your purchases – without it costing you a single penny!

Give a Car

Have you an old banger that you need rid of? Or a car you no longer want? ‘Give a Car’ has raised more than £2 million for charity.

It’s an easy way to get rid of your vehicle and raise money for a good cause – at no cost to you.

Give a Car arrange free collection, then either sell your car at auction or scrap it – with the proceeds going to ME Association.

Visit the Give a Car website or phone them (020 7736 4242), for more information.

Printer cartridge and toner recycling 

Please use Freephone 0800 091 0696 or visit to find out how to recycle your inkjet and toner cartridges.

It’s a completely FREE service and the ME Association will receive up to £4.50 for every printer cartridge that can be successfully recycled. Please do not send Epson cartridges.

Unfortunately, mobile phones are no longer accepted because of changes in Post office regulations.

Stamps – Including Collections

If you are fortunate enough to receive cards or letters in the post, please do save up your stamps.

You can then post them to the address shown opposite. All we ask is that you cut around loose stamps leaving a margin of 5-10mm of envelope.

How you choose to help the ME Association is entirely up to you, and we are incredibly grateful for any support you can provide.
