Card drop off - Monday 3rd to Friday 14th January 2022
How to get involved
The drop off point this year is over the road from Linton House at Thirlestaine Breast Screening Centre where they have an in/out drive. There are large signs saying Christmas Cards and two large bins with a sanitiser station.
PLEASE DO NOT DROP OFF DONATIONS OF CASH, CHEQUES OR STAMPS. PLEASE COME AND GIVE THEM TO FUNDRAISING AT LINTON HOUSE.
Donated cards will be sorted and upcycled by our volunteers into new greetings cards to raise vital funds for our charity.
We are proud to work with local company Printwaste who specialise in recycling and confidential shredding.
Printwaste ensures any waste left over from the collection gets transformed into other paper-based products.
We do accept greeting cards all year round as well as stamps.

By teaming up with Printwaste for The Big Sort we can also do our bit for the environment and reduce unnecessary household waste.
The money these cards raise help us to continue our vital work to support local people across the three counties with cancer, dementia and other conditions.

Christopher Robins, Marketing Manager, Printwaste said "Our partnership with Cobalt and ‘The Big Sort’ spans over a decade and we’re delighted to team up again this year as one of our chosen charities. There’s a real feel-good factor surrounding ‘The Big Sort’ campaign. Not only are we helping raise money for a wonderful cause but it’s being done in an environmentally-friendly way, with upcycling being one of the best forms of re-purposing your unwanted products like Christmas cards and all off-cuts recycled back into paper-based products.”
PET/CT Fundraising Appeal
We are delighted to launch our new appeal to purchase the very latest digital PET/CT technology, which will support NHS patients throughout the Three Counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire.
The new digital PET/CT scanner will be one of only six digital scanners in the country. This will enable patients to be seen quickly, and with short scan times, we can see more patients every day.
