A lot of the work we do is simply bringing people together for greater good and this week has seen us do just that.
We work with many and varied companies and organisations across Cornwall and the UK, in various forms that can be seen in partnerships, in support or simply through social interactions.
We managed to bring 3 groups together this week that we hope will be the start of something good and that will highlight causes and the actions being taken by those involved.
It started with a Coffee with the team at Brandon Trust who provide supported living throughout the SW and that they highlighted the need for some of their residents to be involved in Environmental Projects. With us being quite well connected in Cornwall we were quickly able to reach out and connect them with a few groups and soon after we had arranged a beach clean that will take place later this month. The `Turn the Tide` team were more than welcome to have Brandon Trust onboard to help with their planned events and that it will help highlight the need to look at the waste we are producing and where it often ends up.
Our part in this was not just limited to helping to make this happen but to also provide them with equipment so they could help out and use in the future for other planned events.
We are working with Cormac on waste reduction and this enabled us to re purpose Hi- Vis products from Cormac end of use materials that we could give to Brandon Trust team members to carry out their duties on helping to clean up the environment in ways that will benefit the local community and visitors alike.
This week has been a good week as most weeks are but this week, this simple act we made and the results from joining people up has really raised a smile.
If you have a project that would suit Brandon Trust residents, If you have textile waste, If you want to join in with environmental projects then why not give us a shout and see if we can connect you with others.
