BAM Nuttall site teams have been donating and recycling pallets to the local community across Kent and Sussex. Some pallets are repurposed and carved into bird boxes which are then sold locally by a charity in Kent and some have been donated to local probation services.
A representative from the HM Prison and Probation service who was really pleased with the donation said "Just wanted to say a huge thank you on behalf of myself and my residents for the pallets that you have kindly donated. Our residents are all men who have recently been released from custody and are with us, not only for monitoring purposes, but also to begin the reintegration process of moving back into the community, many after lengthy sentences. We intend to use them as part of our woodworking group, which will not only give the residents new skills but also allow them to make items that will improve the environment they live in, providing them with a sense of worth. Without contributions like this, we simply could not afford to provide useful activities for the men.
If you are interested in donating pallets from site, you can find more information about community wood recycling on this leaflet
. Well done to the teams for supporting our lineside neighbours and local community.
