TriConnex support Edith Borthwick school’s Jubilee Picnic

We continue to strive to give something back to our local communities, and we are pleased to have developed a strong relationship with Edith Borthwick school, by supporting a variety of events and improvement projects.

Edith Borthwick, a special day school for students with severe and complex learning difficulties, organised a summer picnic in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The sponsorship they received from us has helped them to plan and run this well-organised event with lots of activities for the children to enjoy.

With over 250 guests attending, the picnic was a huge success and enabled both families and students to come together and enjoy a relaxed afternoon of amusement, therapeutic bubbles, and refreshments.

Vicky Faulks, Chairperson of the Friends of Edith Borthwick, commented “We were able to create a magical and relaxed atmosphere for everyone. Thank you so very much for the sponsorship and ongoing support, it genuinely makes a difference!”

TriConnex Business Development Team get caked in mud for our community

Last week the Business Development Team here at TriConnex spent a muddy day volunteering at a local Play & Resource centre. The charity provides recreation facilities and respite care for children and young adults.

The team got together and spent a day in the charity’s outdoor area, helping to improve their garden facility by tidying it up, planting flowers, jet washing the paving slabs and making it look refreshed.

After enjoying the first volunteering session so much, they decided to return to the charity for a second day, helping to paint their main indoor space.

Tom Barker, Business Development Manager commented “What a fantastic muddy day it was! Well done to everyone involved, I know we all really enjoyed it.”

Commercial Team Volunteer at Local Nature Reserve

As part of our volunteering scheme, employees can take up to 5 working days paid per year, to dedicate their time to support a charity, institution, or community group, by volunteering their time.

Six Members of our Commercial team recently completed a full day volunteering at Marshall Park in Braintree, Essex, helping members of the council to tidy up the nature reserve.

The volunteering project was arranged through Braintree District Council, but the volunteering is collated and organised by ‘The Friends of Hoppit Mead LNR’, a charitable organisation.

The team was collecting litter from around the nature reserve as well as destroying weeds and taking part in the organisation’s annual ‘Balsam Bashing’.

‘Balsam Bashing’ is the process of destroying the Balsam weeds that grow along the riverbank. The team had to pull the Balsam out from the ground and stamp on the roots. These plants can grow up to 6ft tall and are a threat to other plants, as well as damaging habitats along banks and riversides. Our group removed huge amounts of the plant from the riverbank, so it was a successful day.

Well done to Anna Pringle, Millie Bauckham, Jess Pooley, Ellie Ivey, Josh Aylward and Ricky Clark for volunteering your time and helping the local community with this project.
