THE Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation is celebrating after its recycling appeal hit the £125,000 mark.
The money was raised by supporters recycling old mobile phones and printer cartridges for the charity.
The charity was founded by the Scholes-born entertainer who died from lung cancer in 1994 due to breathing in second-hand smoke while working in smoky clubs.
Janine Drew, fundraising manager, said: "We are delighted to have reached this point in the appeal and would like to take this opportunity to thank the individuals and businesses who have supported the campaign by sending in items to be recycled.
"We would urge people who still currently throw away their old mobile phones and cartridges to take just a few moments of their time to donate them instead.
"It's free, simple to do and really makes a difference."
The recycling appeal has been running for more than five years.
