With the UN Climate Conference (Cop26) being held this week, it seems very apt to let you know the fantastic news that eco-minded Kiefer has now raised over £700 for Aspens!  

Kiefer, who has been supported by Aspens' Family Specialist Team and attends our teens group, has been recycling household items through TerraCycle UK for over two years and chose Aspens as the charity he'd like to support through the national scheme. 

TerraCycle recycles items typically thought of as ‘non-recyclable’ such as coffee capsules, pens and plastic gloves to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill. Individuals or organisations who sign up to have items collected and recycled with TerraCycle can choose a charity to earn rewards for. 

An enormous thanks to Kiefer for his brilliant fundraising on our behalf, we are so grateful (and very much in admiration of his brilliant efforts to protect the environment).
