OLD STUFF (article first published : 2006-05-2)

Today we live in a throwaway society Ė where itís the norm to hurl on the rubbish dump a fairly expense item of technology because to repair it would cost more than a new one. In any case, by the time itís reached the throwaway stage, the equipmentís probably out of date, anyway!

However, thereís always someone who can make use of things that people discard. The Umcebo Trustís director, Robin Opperman, is a veritable magpie when it comes to spotting items that can be used in the making of the Trustís splendid beaded and mosaic banners.

Got any old costume jewellery you want to get rid of? ďIt is just solid gold when it comes to the banners,Ē explains Robin.

Robin has also indicated that he can make use of old CDís Ė artSMart is sending his way a stack of now useless CDís carrying press releases or non-confidential material.

If you have any jewellery or old CDís to give to the Umcebo Trust, contact Robin Opperman on 031 305 3408 or 083 7933408, fax 031 305 3408 or e-mail: robino@polka.co.za or visit http://home.telkomsa.net/tabby
