Healthcare Provider Sponsors New Woodland Grove at the Wildfell Centre for Environmental Recovery
Governors from Provide Community recently visited a new Wildfell site in Wethersfield, Braintree, to plant native hedgerow shrubs around the newly planted woodland. As part of a company-wide initiative, Provide Community promised to plant one tree for every colleague who completed last year’s annual ‘Employee Engagement’ survey. With 570 respondents, the health and social care organisation was able to plant 570 trees in a new woodland area at the Wildfell Centre for Environmental Recovery, which will now be referred to as the ‘Provide Grove’.
The project came about through a collaboration with UK-based grounds maintenance company Ground Control, whose mission is to grow and improve the physical world through environmental initiatives and carbon sequestration. As a key contributor to creating a more sustainable community, Provide Community chose to get involved with Ground Control’s latest Wildfell Project by sponsoring a tree for each completed colleague survey.
Chris Bawtree, Woodland Creation Lead at Ground Control, said:
Operating as a member-owned organisation, Provide Community is responsible for the delivery of more than 50 health and social care services in NHS and community hospital settings across the region.
