We are continuing to dedicate a tree for each new sale and data conversion over the value of £5000.
For the period June to August, 138 trees were dedicated at Penn Wood, Penn, Bucks via the Woodland Trust. The following 13 clients matched our pledge by dedicating a tree themselves:
As part of our commitment to the community we have linked up with Stopsley Community Primary School in Luton. The school has approximately 400 pupils between the ages of 4 and 11. We have funded the clearing of an area of the school playground that was previously out of bounds to the pupils. With the addition of bird nesting boxes and feeders, ladybird houses, bug hotels etc this is being developed into a nature area for the pupils to enjoy.
On the 7th November 2011, Louise Carman from our Head Office was invited to join the pupils at the school for ‘Britain’s Biggest Big School Lunch’ to promote healthy school dinners. Louise commented ‘I was rather apprehensive but I can confirm that school dinners have definitely improved in the 30 years since I left school. No sign of liver and bacon or lumpy semolina. I was impressed by the healthy choices available and lack of chips. Also the dinner ladies knew every pupil’s name’.
