Fundraising whilst Tree-cycling!

Last weekend we helped local charity, Isabel Hospice, raise much needed funds by way of a Christmas Tree Recycling event. An enthusiastic team of MWGM volunteers collected Christmas trees from around the local neighbourhood (in return for a donation) and transported them to a local farm where they were chipped and recycled. 

Together with other local businesses, we collected in excess of 850 trees, raising £15,304! This fantastic amount will go towards paying for over 600 hours of specialist palliative care at Isabel Hospice’s in-patient unit. 

We were delighted to help this charity especially as the current pandemic has had a huge impact on their fundraising activities during the past year. We will also be donating the money we saved by sending our Christmas cards electronically to this worthy cause.  

A great start to 2021!

Covid-19 Safe Methods of Working

At the beginning of the pandemic we adapted our working procedures to ensure we met all guidelines to limit the risk of infection for staff and clients.

We have now formalised these working procedures into several documents for clients, site staff, members of the public, and other contractors to review.

Please see our Covid-19 Safe Method of Working document here

Please see our Office and Workplace Risk Assessment here

Please see our Operational Risk Assessment here.

These documents will be amended as necessary based on new/amended government guidance and from experience maintaining sites.
