Members of Analox battled the wind and the rain last week in order to tidy up marshland which acts as home to thousands of birds in the North East.
Six team members donned their waterproof waders and shears to cut back shrubbery, remove debris and rubbish and clear walkways from the Nature Reserve based in Saltholme, near Middlesbrough.
Owned by the RSPB, the reserve is the perfect place for bird watchers as the location includes a visitors centers, hides and screens so you can get even closer to the wildlife without disturbing them in their natural habitat.
The family friendly wetlands are open to the public and Analox offer to go once a year as part of our charity day commitment. Staff members are allowed to take one day out of the their working week to help others in the community.
Julie Cole HR Manager said, “Charity days provide us with an opportunity to give time to those in the community and surrounding areas who run or manage a charities and need a bit of support. We have been running the ‘charity day’ initiative for a number of years and the feedback we get from staff is that they love doing it and it's a great idea.
“We will continue to offer the day to our employees and would welcome anyone locally who needs our help to contact us directly so we can add you to the list of charities we offer our time to.”
