At Kenny Waste Management, the team has been busy fundraising for our 2019 charities – and there are more ways to donate than giving money, as they’ve been finding out…
On Sunday, one of the local projects close to our hearts will get the chance to showcase its fantastic work on national television. BBC1’s Countryfile visited the Create For Nature project in Cheshire, which Kenny Waste Management has been supporting. We wrote about Create for Nature’s innovative approach to sustainable fundraising in our blog last month. It’s a truly original way of diverting wood waste from landfill! Sam Salisbury from Cheshire Wildlife Trust came up with a creative way to raise money: making and selling bespoke wooden furniture made from waste products. The Trust converted an old cattle shed in Bickley Hall Farm, and there was soon a team of volunteer furniture makers in place. They create the most beautiful, unique furniture which is sold through Etsy.
It’s time to get out the spades. On 6 March, a team of five eager volunteers from Kenny Waste Management will be helping the Woodland Trust plant trees in the Trust’s Smithills Estate near Bolton.
We’re delighted to announce an exciting new partnership between Kenny Waste Management and the Woodland Trust. Our Technical Director and Driving Change leader, Paul Eagleton, met with Chris Waterfield from the Woodland Trust earlier this month. They’ve come up with partnership plans which benefit the charity and a local community – while offsetting carbon emissions.
