Shoppers at a Norwich store can help raise money for a cancer charity by donating their old mobile phones and empty ink cartridges for recycling.

Throughout February QD stores across the Norfolk and Waveney region will be urging their customers to help them support Norwich-based cancer charity Big C.

Funds raised from the recycling initiative will go towards purchasing equipment for local hospitals, funding cancer patient care, and furthering research into the disease.

Collection boxes will also be placed at till points to enable people to donate money directly to the charity.

QD's Marketing Manager, Alan Hatcher, said: 'QD's customers have always proved exceptionally generous with our in-store charity fundraising. The collection boxes will be prominently placed for customers' convenience whilst shopping and we look forward to raising a significant amount in aid of the Big C's latest campaign.'

Customers will find Big C recycling and collection boxes at all twelve of QD's outlets across the region.
