Let It Grow

In 2022 in partnership with Essex Forest Initiative we planted 1600 trees at Canvey Island.

We have now set the bar higher.

We want to help plant 10,000 trees in 2023. To do this we need your help. We are looking for 100 volunteers to use their Giving Back Day to do this. It is an excellent opportunity to meet new people and make a real difference in the air quality of a local community.

The dates and times of the event are as follows:

Date: 23–25 January

Time: 10 am – 4 pm

Address: Gloucester Park

                Cranes Farm Road

If you wish to volunteer, please discuss it with your line manager and contact Pranay.Kavathekar@mitie.com. Also, make sure you log your volunteering hours as part of Giving Back.
