Volunteers making a (green) impact!

We’re delighted to share that our team, that being the joint effort of our team and our volunteers, have received three awards in the Trust’s Green Impact Awards.

The Green Impact Awards recognise efforts across the Trust to reduce carbon emissions, reduce waste and improve sustainability – including things like going paperless, planting on our sites, reducing travel, using more sustainable resources and reducing the use of plastics.

Our team won:

  • Silver award – for all the efforts made at Rosewood Involvement Centre to plant, to use garden-grown foods and to reduce waste
  • Special award – ‘Environmental Improvement’ – for the efforts of our volunteering team to make volunteer recruitment largely paperless
  • Special award – ‘Environmental Hero’ – for Gordon, our brilliant volunteer and Rosewood Gardener, who has cultivated and shared plants with other sites, manages our Rosewood garden and reduced his own carbon footprint when volunteering.

You can watch a video of our Exec Director Simon, responsible for Estates, and our Trust Chair Paul, announce the winners of the Trust’s Green Impact Awards here:

We’re very proud to have won these awards and very grateful to our staff and volunteers for all the things they’ve done to engage in this initiative and make the world a better place, one small step at a time.
