The time has come to say a final farewell. Re-ward Club was fully shut down on the 1st November 2013.
As a not-for-profit scheme, Re-ward Club was totally reliant on government funding through DEFRA to keep it running. In July this year, funding was withdrawn by DEFRA which meant we had no option but to discontinue the scheme.
In August this year, we wrote to everyone with outstanding tokens and encouraged them to send their collected tokens back to us. For every token received, we indicated that we would donate 50p for each one to our community groups. Donations will be made to the selected groups before Christmas.
Want to get more involved with activities to reduce, re-use and repair?
If you’re interested in reducing, re-using, repairing and recycling and you live in the London Boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow or Richmond, why not get involved with the other things we do. There’s more information on our website http://www.westlondonwaste.gov.uk/in-your-area but here’s a brief list:
• Talks and activities to help you save up to £60 a month with Love Food Hate Waste
• Swishing – using your clothes as currency to revamp your wardrobe at no cost
• Reduce and re-use sessions – including games and presentations suitable for all age groups
• Swapping and recycling events – for all sorts of household items including electrical items.
The Re-ward Club team would once again like to thank you for your support with the Re-ward Club project.
