As part of their management training programme, Amlin, recently completed a 3-day CSR project. The project included 2-days at Newlands Bishop Farm in Solihull, which is a social enterprise run by adults with learning difficulties. The farm is helping young people of all abilities to find their feet and to grow in confidence and ability, whilst providing work, training and social skills for those involved.
The Amlin group built a shelter for recycling rain water which is next to the allotment. The allotment provides food for the farm to sell. They then built an irrigation system to fill water butts (which is about 5,000 litres) which helps water the garden and vegetables. Then finished off by creating a farm shop out of an old stable to sell the produce in. A fantastic achievement by all in just 2 days! Why not do something like this within your company? www.csrprojects.com
