REPIC, the UK’s largest waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) compliance scheme with its headquarters on Waterfold Business Park in Bury, has made a heartfelt donation as part of its WEEE Cycle event legacy to the Bury Cancer Support Centre.

This donation comes at a poignant time as both organisations celebrate their 20th anniversary years. The Bury Cancer Centre, selected by REPIC employee Jack, who has previously volunteered at the centre will receive a £375 contribution from REPIC. Representatives from REPIC visited the centre this week to meet the staff, volunteers and take a tour of the facility.

In total, REPIC has contributed over £2,000 to local charities in Bury, including the Andy’s Man Club, Bury Sport Academy Junior Football Team and Scout Group 9th Heywood. These donations were selected by employees as part of the company’s nationwide WEEE Cycle event, commemorating the 15th anniversary of electrical recycling in the UK. The final donation made to the Bury Cancer Support Centre has brought the total amount donated by REPIC and its supporters to £15,000, serving as a fitting legacy to the 15-day cycle event to showcase the importance of recycling electricals in the UK.

Louise Grantham, Chief Executive at REPIC, commented: “As we commemorate two milestone anniversaries in our own sector, we are reminded of the importance of giving back to the local community that has been integral to our success. The Bury Cancer Support Centre plays a vital role in our community, and we are honoured to support this worthwhile cause.”

In response to the donation, the manager of Bury Cancer Support Centre, Jan Katana, conveyed her gratitude, adding: “We are incredibly grateful for the donation from REPIC. This contribution will greatly assist us in our mission to continue to provide additional care and support to cancer patients. It’s heartening to see local businesses like REPIC stepping up to make a difference, especially during such a significant milestone for both our organisations.”

REPIC has also expressed its intention to continue supporting the Bury Cancer Support Centre with further donations this year, reaffirming its ongoing commitment to giving back to the local community as the WEEE producer compliance scheme celebrates 20 years in business this year.
