Four members of the Banner team - Alex Clayton, Kirk Townsend, Alex Milano-Tee and Natasha Barker - joined colleagues from Edding, as well as a big group of pupils from Ryecroft Academy, and got stuck in to planting over 200 trees of different varieties - helping us and them learn more about sustainability and the environment.

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.
