East Linton Primary School are collecting mobile phones for a competition to win the new activotes for their school. They will be able to interact with their whiteboards even better. However, they need to collect 250 mobile phones so please could you help them by sending your old phones to Ben and Eloise at East Linton Primary School. East Linton is a small school so it would be a big achievement if all the council could help them.
As well as us getting Activotes, money is donated to ChildLine and you get to be very eco friendly by recycling.
