Like all businesses we generate waste in the form of paper, cardboard and plastics. We pride ourselves on dealing with this waste responsibly by recycling wherever possible. This means our staff take the time to separate any plastics the can be recycled from those that cannot be recycled; the cardboard paper and daily shredding are all bagged up and collected regularly by our waste management contractor; and if at all possible we re-use. Additionally, we use a reputable local firm for our bulk secure shredding requirements.
We actively support St Peter & St James Hospice through various fund raising activities including staff sponsored participation in local sporting events, specific sponsorship of events put on by the Hospice, and being part of their annual Make a Will Scheme.
We had great pleasure in hosting a coffee morning in May 2015 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We were delighted that this event raised over £300 for Macmillian. It was also an eye-opener to see (and taste) the baking talents of all our staff! Delicious!
We had great pleasure in being part of the Holy Trinity Christmas Tree Festival in December 2015, which raised over £6,000 for Chestnut Tree House Children's Hospice. We are hoping to take part in the festival again this year so please see our News & Events section for an update closer to the time.
We support young talent through ART on the Line. A local initiative launched in May 2013 as part of Southern Rail’s station improvement program.
