Adopt a phone box for £1

Community groups can apply to adopt a phone box for only £1.

The scheme encourages groups to innovate phone boxes. Transformations vary from using them as community food banks to lighting them up in blue to pay tribute to the NHS.

Foodbank example

The Driven Forward Charity in Windsor, has turned a phone box into a donation point for items for the local foodbank during the coronavirus
pandemic. Donors can drop off non-perishable food goods through the removed panel. Once a week volunteers then pick the items up and deliver them to Windsor Foodshare.

NHS tribute example

In Crich, near Matlock in Derbyshire, the local community adopted their local phone box to house a defibrillator. Recently, the window of the phone box has been transformed to commemorate the NHS with a stunning stained-glass window. Mrs Richmond, who came up with the idea, also worked as a nurse for 21 years, and said the NHS panel had been
particularly meaningful.
