Bottle top challenge in aid of Mencap

The ETHICS Department would like to thank everyone for their continued support with our Milk Bottle collection. We began last year with the challenge issued by the British Metal Works Museum, collecting over 3,000 bottle tops (of all kinds). Initially we intended to create a collage highlighting the tragic consequences of waste in our environment, especially our oceans. However, COVID prevented us from doing this. So, undeterred we decided instead to support the New Forest Mencap Recycling scheme, which uses the funds received from the bottle tops to give young people exciting opportunities.
We now have collected 6,216 Milk Bottle tops, and counting . . . We have a further collection of other bottle tops ,too.
Please continue to support us. Our aim is 20,000!
