Recycling Lives has received a generous donation of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), from integrated property support services and project delivery specialists Styles&Wood Group PLC.
Styles&Wood, whose head office is based in nearby Altrincham, recently decided to change their branding, requiring all PPE to be replaced with new gear bearing the new designs. After collecting all their old PPE at their recent annual conference, they decided to donate it to the Recycling Lives charity for use by our Residents.
The PPE, which includes hard hats and high visibility clothing such as jackets and vests, was collected from the Altrincham office by Charity Manager, Adam Ainscough, along with Resident Gareth, on Wednesday. It will be put to use by the Residents on their work experience placements, most of which take place in our commercial recycling operations. Health and safety is a key concern in these jobs and PPE helps our workers stay safe and visible.
Adam Ainscough, Project Manager, commented:
“This generous donation of PPE from Styles&Wood will be put to good use ensuring our residents are safe and visable during their work placement. The work placements are a key part of the charity process and many Residents go on to take full time employment within our commercial operations. It is good to see companies like Styles&Wood enagaging with the community and helping charity. They are a great example to other companies across the country.”
