Planting day at St Oswald's Church of England Primary Academy, Bradford
St Oswald's Primary in Bradford was visited by representatives of XL Joinery to help plant trees in the school grounds. Pupils, staff and representatives of XL Joinery planted the saplings to create wildlife habitats and encourage biodiversity. The trees were all native British species, grown in the UK and include Dog Rose, Hazel, Elder, Rowan, Wild Cherry and English Oak.
“We’re thrilled to have partnered with Carbon Footprint and St Oswald’s Church of England Primary School for the tree-planting activity. Reducing our impact on the environment is an important part of our company ethos, which is why we’re always looking for ways to actively help. We hope that the children enjoyed the activity as much as we did, and we look forward to seeing the trees come to life over the upcoming years!” - Tim Wood, Marketing Manager at XL Joinery
These new saplings will provide a perfect habitat for wildlife, promoting biodiversity and preserving the natural environment. The children gained hands-on experience of how trees are planted and learned how important trees are to the world in which we live.
“It’s great to see XL Joinery take a leading position in reducing and offsetting its carbon emissions. By supporting UK school tree planting, the company is also helping to educate the younger generations in environmental responsibility.” - Dr. Wendy Buckley, Client Director at Carbon Footprint
XL Joinery has teamed up with Carbon Footprint as part of their carbon management programme and with Tree Appeal, planting native broadleaf trees in schools. XL Joinery is sponsoring the planting of more than 100 trees at St Oswald's, demonstrating their commitment to environmental education and their aim of reducing their impact on the natural world.
“We were delighted when Carbon Footprint informed us that XL Joinery would be visiting our school for the tree-planting activity. It’s wonderful to see the children become so involved with the initiative.” - Mr Shaun Wiseman, Assistant Headteacher
