Plant trees, build teams, leave a lasting legacy

We were out in The Heart of England Forest this week planting trees, then enjoyed bacon sarnies to round off the morning at Studley Castle – what a great way to build teams and demonstrate your commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility.

The Phoenix Group is enthusiastic about the business benefits of tree planting, “The Heart of England Forest provides a perfect biodiverse playground for organisations to demonstrate their commitment to enhancing the local environment, employee engagement, supporting school visits, and generally improving peoples’ wellbeing and fitness. It also provides a lasting legacy for generations to come.”

Lucy Symonds, Phoenix CR Manager said, “By planting trees in The Heart of England Forest we feel  it  is important that we are doing something tangible in our local area, which isn’t just a token gesture.  We have sponsored a large area of woodland which we can visit and we can feature as part of our CSR commitment. It’s great to know that we are helping to create England’s largest native broadleaf forest and that this will be a thriving wildlife woodland in the Warwickshire countryside. The Phoenix Way wood is planted with oak, alder, aspen, hazel and birch.”

Join The Phoenix Group at The UK CSR Showcase on 11th February 2014 at Ragley Hall for more ideas about how you can support the environment in your local area and leave a lasting legacy. Contact carolelongden@longden.co.uk for more information about tree planting and team building.

Organised by Longden Events, the group race around Stratford on a beautiful summer’s day gaining clues at 10 lovely locations. The answers to the questions give the opportunity to discover the long lost Shakespeare’s Secret Treatment, which restores health and well-being to the world. What a great way to build teams, learn something new and have fun!

Carole Longden comments, “Stratford-upon-Avon is the perfect playground for teambuilding events, as the teams enjoy the mix of fun, history, exercise, lovely locations, friendly people, shopping and they can give something back by enjoying a delicious lunch at The Buzz Arts & Community Centre – Stratford’s social enterprise and amazing charity venue.”

CSR goes painting at The Buzz with Lloyds TSB

Give and Gain in action at The Buzz with a lively group from Lloyds TSB who are giving The Enterprise Hub a much needed makeover. A lovely team have escaped the branch and put their painting skills to good use in Stratford upon Avon. Thanks to Mary Judge and the team at BITC for organising the day, which will mean that The Buzz Arts and Community Venue can offer a newly painted affordable, accessible venue for all sections of the community to enjoy. Thanks to the lovely Lloyds decorators for all their hard work!

The Air Ambulance and Unipart CSR Day in The Heart of England Forest

Today was a fantastic example of people giving back and enjoying a day in the beautiful bluebell woods of the Heart of England Forest. Jo Payne, from the Air Ambulance led a team of 20 intrepid “slashers” who gave up their time as part of a CSR programme to hack back brambles and clear pathways so that children can safely visit Wild Wood this summer.

“It is such a privilege to work with Jo Payne and her team who really worked hard and demonstrate CSR in action, by doing something useful for the environment and bringing a team together to share a great experience in the open air”
