Two teenage boys are calling for donations of toner cartridges to help them raise enough cash for a once in a lifetime trip to Nepal.

Peter Batt and Dean Harfield, both from Bracknall in Berkshire, want to join their fellow pupils at Edgbarrow School when they go to the South Asian country for an expedition next year, getbracknell.co.uk reported.

However, at age 14, the lads are too young to take on formal employment to garner the £3,595 they need to fund the trip.

"Our age is our biggest issue when it comes to raising money. We are only 14 and our newspaper rounds will not get us even close to our target. Most of the time health and safety regulations are in the way of us getting a proper job," Peter told the newspaper.

In addition to toner cartridges, the boys will also collect unwanted CDs, mobile phones and DVDs, all of which can be recycled for cash.

Recently, a cheerleader from California, US, attempted to raise money to attend a cheerleading day in London on New Year's Day by collecting ink cartridges.
