Demonstrating our ongoing commitment to zero waste to landfill; Banner donated 5,280 bottles of Hand Sanitiser to Trinity Methodist Church Mission in Castleford, Yorkshire.
Some years ago Banner achieved 'zero waste to landfill' across all its UK sites. As part of this commitment we regularly donate surplus stock to support local communities. Most recently we have provided easy access to improved hand hygiene through a donation of sanitiser to support those most in need.
The hand sanitiser has been widely distributed throughout Castleford to many different community groups, and all have been gratefully received. These groups include primary and infant schools, food banks, GP surgeries, sports clubs, and churches; as well as to individual residents who are involved in community activities such as litter picking.
Banner stepped up and organised a delivery to the Trinity Methodist Church Mission.
Councillor Richard Forster said: "On behalf of all the groups and individuals who will benefit from the gift of the hand sanitiser, may I say a massive thank you.
Your kind gift has benefited so many people of all ages across Castleford and hopefully will go some way to reducing the spread of Covid-19 within our community."
We're are also saying a big thank you to the Banner volunteers; Ian Dixon and Lisa Ford who organised the donation, and also to Mark Tindall, Rebecca Stackhouse and David Anderson who ensured the timely and safe delivery of the goods.
We’re glad that we are able to play a small part in supporting local communities, like Castleford. Avoiding wastage is a constant focus for us here at Banner and we'll go above and beyond to make donations wherever possible. Other examples of donations include support for Samaritans Wakefield branch, The South Yorkshire Flood Appeal and Micklefield Primary School.
