Our LauraLynn Partnership
Battery Recycling Powering Support
As well as benefiting the environment and recovering precious materials for reuse in manufacturing, your battery recycling efforts support the children, families and staff at LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice.
Every battery recycled by WEEE Ireland goes towards a donation fund to support the vital work provided LauraLynn.
This support allows LauraLynn to deliver invaluable hospice care and emotional, social and spiritual support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.
LauraLynn, Ireland’s Children’s Hospice provides respite, crisis and end-of-life care to children with life-limiting conditions, and support to their families, both in hospice and in the comfort of a child’s own home.
