    What to do with my brace now I'm leaving the UK? :(

    Heyy
    Im an international student from germany and ive been in the uk for the last year...
    i brought my brace over but, i dont have 2 wear it anymore... due to backpain i wanted 2 be safe and my dad send it 2 me.
    i only used it twice in the whole year & it's way 2 small now, so i wont take it back home...

    but.. i dont want 2 just throw it in a bin, or sth like that...
    so do u have any idea where 2 hand in an old brace? maybe a clinic so they can show an example or sth like that?
    or maybe charity or anything?
    if it depends on the area, im in south devon...

    If I were you, I would just ask around. Maybe call a few hospitals around you and ask if they would know where to put it or if they can use it. Another place to call would be your brace maker. They could have some instruction for what to do with them. If worst comes to worst and nobody knows, find the dumpster of the hotel you are staying at or maybe the school dorm's dumpsters and just throw it in. I don't see any reason not to get rid of it like that. I hope that helps!
    BTW, I have been to Stuttgart and Garmische Germany. miss it tons!
