Rotary Yorkshire Tea Wheelchair Appeal

Yorkshire Tea joined forces with the Rotary back in 2005 to help support the Wheelchair Foundation, launching our own Yorkshire Tea Wheelchair Appeal. So far Rotarians have exchanged Yorkshire Tea tokens for 8 wheelchairs, but we know you can help us buy more! You may have noticed the tokens you are familiar with have disappeared off our packs and have been replaced with our new tree tokens, so now we’re asking you to collect barcodes instead.

Barcodes Buy Wheelchairs!

The Barcodes are worth credits, depending on the pack size which you buy. 80 tea bags = 1 credit 160 tea bags = 2 credits 240 tea bags = 3 credits For every 10 credits returned we’ll donate £1 to the Wheelchair Foundation. Every £75 that we donate buys and delivers one new wheelchair, so, with 56,000 Rotarians in RIBI, and only 750 credits required to buy and deliver one chair, we’re expecting an enormous response!
