Cable reels donated to schools


hi I’m  a Year 1 teacher at a school. We are currently working on our outdoor learning area and were wondering if you could spare some empty cable reels as a donation. We would use the cable reels to make tables and stools for the children and create writing areas. We could also use them to make ‘small world’ areas, such as turn them in to toadstools for a fairyland small world fantasy land. Please could you let me know of an email or number I could contact to see if this donation is possible. Thank you

Re: Cable reels donated to schools

cabling is mostly done by sub-contractors, so there would be no-one here that would have anything like that.
i would think it's unlikely they would donate though, most will be recycled, and health and safety concerns would be too much of a risk.

Hi, the cables used by virgin are high quality and very expensive. So most Probably they won't give for free. But still as you want to use in school, You can try asking if they might get interest in donation for this cables in school.
