As premier partners Warnes publish a feature in every issue. In number 12 we highlight the success of our recycling directive and how it’s reducing waste and raising funds for local charity: www.stbarnabas-hospice.org.uk.
Here’s an excerpt taken from the article, a statement from Steve Hobbs, Warnes Projects Founder and Company Director: “St Barnabas House give amazing care to local people which I learnt first-hand last year when they cared for my Father. I really wanted to give something back, hence this initiative. It started as a way to recycle and raise some funds for St Barnabas House, but has to my surprise, been hugely popular with our clients, subcontractors and our staff, who have all really embraced the initiative. Recycling is of course very important, so we wanted to demonstrate corporate social responsibility through our Environment Policy and with our on-site recycling scheme we can produce a report for each of our clients at the end of their project, which shows how much landfill they have saved. And even better, the recycled materials, instead of going to landfill become a charitable donation. It really is a win win.”
And here’s a comment from Wendy Bardsley, St Barnabas House Fundraising Manager: “This is a really exciting project that Steve has come up with. He looked creatively at how his company could support St Barnabas House, but has gone beyond that remit by creating a recycling scheme which benefits us all. Steve is so enthusiastic, with a strong community spirit and I know he is hoping that other companies will be inspired to come up with their own schemes.”
