October Half Term – “Four days of adventure”

4th November 2019

We today heard back from Reece Walker, the winner of our Recycling Challenge who has had a busy half term holiday with his winnings from our recycling competition!

As part of our Positive Impact Plan and our commitment to reducing our impact, we ran a competition in July to promote recycling and reuse of materials, whilst emphasising creativity and innovation. We asked children of all ages to create something which extended the life of some rubbish or recycling.

Our overall winner Reece Walker was drawn at random from all of our entries. Reece made some seed planters and a small greenhouse from a range of different materials.

What they said:

In a letter back to us at nmcn Reece said “I went to Manchester for four days with my Mum and Dad and we had four days of adventure “.

Michaela Skodova, Group Environmental Manager said: “It’s important for children to understand how important it is to reduce, reuse and recycle. We are delighted to hear back from Reece and to learn he and his family have had fun. Recycling should now be a vital part of all our everyday lives. We have to do all we can to ensure we reduce our impact by reusing what we can and recycling at every opportunity”.
