A Carmarthen based local business has come up with a great way of raising funds using one of Cerebra’s collection boxes.

Odette Aubrey of Cards Are Us hosts one of our boxes on her counter and has decided to use it to collect all of the 5ps from when customers buy a carrier bag.

Odette said: “When customers buy a carrier bag we always put the 5p in Cerebra’s charity box and when they realise that it’s going to such a great charity, lots of people give all of their loose change. Our customers love the fact that 100% of the carrier bag charge goes to Cerebra.”

Cards Are Us have so far collected an impressive £149.86 for Cerebra – all from simply collecting 5 pence pieces!

Hosting one of our boxes is a great way to raise vital funds for children with brain related conditions but also helps to raise awareness of Cerebra.
