The team are encouraging fans to bring in unwanted mobile phones to take part in a mobile phone recycling scheme, raising vital funds for us.

“We’re really excited to get involved Lister Unified Communications and Meningitis Now, supporting the charity and the life changing work they do.”

“We will be launching the scheme to our fans on a match day, during our home game against Torquay United on New Year’s Day. It’s something people of all ages can get involved in, and it’s a chance to put old phones to good use, and help raise money for a good cause.”

“We have also invited members of our schools ambassadors scheme along on the day to get involved in a shootout competition at half-time, with a fantastic array of prizes from Lister Unified Communications up for grabs, including two Windows based tablets.”

The scheme launched on Friday 1 January and will run until Forest Green’s final home match on Saturday 30 January. Mobile phone recycling bins will be located in reception at the club’s New Lawn Stadium.

Everyone who makes a donation will be entered into a raffle, in with a chance of winning a family ticket to a Forest Green Rovers match.
