gbp helping to clear-up the towpaths in Birmingham
Earlier this week a group of Birmingham based gbp colleagues spent a day volunteering for the Canal & River Trust, helping to keep the towpaths around Birmingham maintained by cutting back vegetation that had been growing along the canal edge and keeping it clear for pedestrians, runners and cyclists.
The day had been organised as part of gbp's Sustainable September initiative, and provided opportunities for members of the team to get involved in volunteering activities that would have an impact on the local environment. Ben Richards, gbp's Part-Qualified Management Accountant who organised the day, commented:
"The team received many compliments from passers by, telling us we were doing a good job, and we definitely made a difference. With thanks to Alex Vasilev, Sara Aminzadeh, Andrea Westwood, Kiran Nandra, Morven Szulc (ACA), Allen Joy, Richard Ford and Miah Suemul, for joining me on the day, and also to Volunteer Lead Alex Deeley and volunteer Pete for guiding us on what we needed to do. We really enjoyed the day and we hope we can do it again in the future."
Well done team!
