Bourne have donated £100 to South Derbyshire Karate Academy, a not for profit community-focused group that provides quality karate training and free anti-bullying courses for children aged 4 and up.
The club has over 120 active members and our Construction Manager Dave Loan (Sensei Dave) helps to run the club as well as teach classes. They’ve sent us this lovely photo of some of the members to say thank you for the donation which they will be using to buy new equipment for the club.
The Bourne Group has received an award for recycling 680kg of paper at the London office in 2018. This is the equivalent of saving 8 trees and 950kg of CO2.
We make a big effort to recycle waste in all our Bourne Group offices and sites so we are very pleased to hear that our efforts have paid off.
In recent years we’ve adopted various other measures to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill including promoting the use of reusable drink glasses and bottles and phasing out the use of single use plastic cups. We’ve also removed our individual ‘under desk’ bins and installed single waste and recycling points. This has significantly increased the amount of material recycled by removing the temptation for people to ‘easily’ throw away recyclable items.
