On Saturday 7th May 2016, The Landscape Group (TLG) took part in the Rotary Club’s Charity Sandwich Board Campaign held in Burton upon Trent.
The objective of the Rotary Club is to carry out varied tasks locally, nationally and internationally in order to raise money. The Sandwich Board march was brought to our attention by our client Trent & Dove Housing whom we carry out the grounds maintenance for across the Borough.
During 2015 and 2016, Burton upon Trent Rotary Club carried out many tasks including:
– Taking elderly people on a day’s coach tour, river cruise and luncheon
– Donations and help facilities at a Children’s Hospice
– Supporting the Burton’s Children’ of Courage Awards
– Giving parcels of food to lonely, elderly people
– Improving a school’s facility in Malawi
– Decorating facilities at the Burton Hospital
– Support the Nepal earthquake disaster relief fund
As part of our support, a TLG sandwich board was paraded through the shopping areas of Burton upon Trent. In total the sandwich board march raised a total of £6,150.
