Brickmakers’ Wood Project for Eden-Rose Coppice Trust
On Thursday 21st April, Haven Power started volunteering for the Brickmakers’ Wood Project, which will see Haven Power lending a hand until January 2017.
Run by the Eden-Rose Coppice Trust, the Brickmakers’ Wood Project takes to neglected and often misused woodlands with the aim to restore and transform them into beautiful, tranquil green spaces that can be used by people with cancer, or children with physical or learning disabilities. Brickmakers’ Wood is located near the Back Hamlet area of Ipswich between Suffolk New College and Alexandra Park.
Continuing until early next year, Haven has signed up for 10 volunteering days spread over the next 10 consecutive months. Plans to add extra dates and extend the volunteering period throughout 2017 are in their final stages due to the enthusiastic response of Haven employees.
Roughly 100 of Haven’s staff will participate in this project throughout the course of year.
Jonathan Kini, CEO at Haven Power, commented:
“We are extremely proud to be involved in this project and support the Eden-Rose Coppice Trust. The staff here at Haven have shown tremendous enthusiasm and we’re all looking forward to restoring the woodland into a peaceful, green space and giving back to the local community.”
The Eden-Rose Coppice Trust operates a similar project in Sudbury which has proven very successful; as we expect the Ipswich project to be in the coming months.
