Boxes are priced at 30 pounds per pack of 10, 40 pounds per pack of 20 and 60 pounds per pack of 30, available at

The pro bono activity is also being supported by PR agency MSL and Clear Channel UK, which has donated more than 200,000 pounds worth of premium outdoor media space to advertise the initiative.
