BatteryBack has kindly donated a battery tester to Newlife which will be used to test the batteries that are returned through our Play Therapy Pod service that loans specialist toys to disabled children.
Previously, Newlife recycled all of the batteries without knowing if they had been used or not but now with this device, the batteries can now be tested enabling Newlife to reuse the batteries that have not been drained of energy. BatteryBack will recycle any used batteries at no cost.
This approach is good news for the environment and good news for Newlife's finances as it reduces battery purchasing costs and allows vital funds to be used in other areas.
BatteryBack is the largest Battery Compliance Scheme in the UK and collects and recycles batteries on behalf of its members. It is a joint venture between Veolia and WasteCare.

Thank you for my new car seat. It was ten out of ten - fabulous. It feels comfy and I give it a double thumbs up!
We write to express our sincere thanks and appreciation for the funding you recently provided for our son Oliver. This walker is already proving invaluable, not only in developing his strength and stamina, but also as a means for exploring in a way he has never been able to before.
This chair has already changed our lives even though we have only had it a couple of weeks. Last week we were able to take Emily out to the zoo during half term and because of the lie feature on the wheelchair we were able to take her into the disabled toilets to change and see to her cares, something we have never before been able to do, it was always a case of doing Emily's care in the boot of the car; very uncivilised !! The moulded seat is so supportive and comfortable and Emily just loves it. Thank you so much.
