Do you have any equipment loaned by the hospital that you no longer need? Then please let Rotary help you!

Over the years the hospital has loaned equipment to patients to aid their recovery which by now, in many cases, will be surplus to their requirements. So here is a wonderful opportunity to return it to the hospital enabling them to recycle it for reuse!

On Sunday 18th February between 10a.m and 4p.m four of the borough’s Rotary Clubs have arranged to use premises in their area to enable the public to return any equipment which is surplus to their needs.

Wigan Rotary Club President Gwyneth Millard said ‘this appears to be a win - win event where the person creates some more space at home and at the same time gives the hospital the opportunity to use recycled equipment and save money. This is another example of Rotary working with Wigan Council for the benefit of the borough’s residents. With NHS budget under so much strain we feel we are doing a little bit to help our local hospital trust but we need the help of the borough’s resident to make the day a success.’

Residents can bring any item to the addresses listed below but it would be appreciated if it was clean to reduce the work of the Council in recycling before returning it to the hospital. If the item is too large or heavy telephone one of the numbers and the Rotary Club will arrange with the Council for this to be collected. Please Note - Medicines, Tablets, Bandages etc., cannot be accepted.

Gwyneth continued ‘ We hope people will really get behind this project and we have rooms full of recyclable equipment by the end of the day’.

The collection centres are:

Sunshine House, - Wellington Street, WIGAN WN1 3SA 07813 471000
