Any old smartphone, tablet, games consoles and games can go to a much better use if you chose to recycle them this Christmas.

There are bound to be many old phones and tech devices discarded around homes this Christmas, as shiny new updates command our attention.

The BUMBLEance Children’s Ambulance Service collect used items and recycle them under their GREEN initiative.

BUMBLEance is the most modern children’s ambulance service on the planet and it is the world’s first interactive ambulance purposefully designed for children,

Every cent raised from the BUMBLEance recycling campaign translates into money to help critically ill kids.

They also accept DVDs, video games, electronic gadgets and books.

The Donegal drop-off point is at Lizdan Business Services Limited – t/a Accountantonline, CoLab Centre, Port Road, Letterkenny. So make sure to hold on to your recyclables until after the holidays.

The BUMBLEance service launched its first regionally based vehicle serving Donegal and the North West in November. The regional BUMBLEette service is specifically designed for critically ill children who need to avail of vital transportation but who do not require a paramedic or EMT on board.

The BUMBLEette has all the amenities of a fully operational BUMBLEance and is fully equipped with a fun filled entertainment system that includes a TV, Xbox, DVDs, sensory lighting, music, books, games, consoles, Wi-Fi, social media streaming and a PlayStation.

Additionally, the bright and fun exterior and interior décor of the BUMBLEette provides a distinctively positive and reassuring first impression to young patients who are often facing a challenging and somewhat daunting journey from 2 to 5 hours all over Ireland.

The Donegal and North West BUMBLEette also functions as a Children’s Chemo Cab service as it transports critically ill children suffering from a variety of cancer-specific illnesses to and from hospitals and critical care centres.
