Hub Update – Thursday 9th Jan 2020
The Happiness Project Update – Thanks for all your support!
Message from the Forest Hall Girl Guides “As we start the new year, I wanted to say thank you for your ongoing support and let you know
how things are going with the recycling project. Although we have been collecting ‘rubbish’ for a while we made the conscious decision in
August to really make an effort to increase what we collected to support the Brownie and Guide units as well as the Happiness Project
(a collaborative project with Park View Care Home). After reaching out to organisations in the local area we now collect regular donations from
a number of businesses and since September have collected the following weights in non-recyclable rubbish:
Crisp packets – 57.6kg
Sweet wrappers – 6.66kg
Snack packets – 12.1kg
Biscuit wrappers – 7.85kg
Pens – 17kg
To some this may not sound like a huge amount but in total it is over 101kg of rubbish that has not gone into landfill and will be made into new products.
It has also helped us to raise £181.25 for our units which is an incredible help.
So from all of the members of Girlguiding Forest Hall, I would like to say the biggest of thanks for all of your support and keep sending us your rubbish.
Please feel free to share our story. We are always looking for more supporters but we are particularly looking for people to help with the sorting and
storage of what we collect.”
