There was a fantastic turnout for the recent Topek Limited community litter pick in Chesterfield in Derbyshire.
Taking place on a warm but changeable Autumn Day, members of the Topek team were joined by volunteers from our long-term friends at Bolsover Boxing Club.
We’ve known Bolsover Boxing Club for 14 years through our Senior Project Manager, Shane Young, who is also a coach at the club. We’ve volunteered and worked together on many local community projects, and we were delighted the club could join us in the litter picking day.
Nearly 20 volunteers spent the day scouring the town and surrounding countryside to collect and bag litter. In total, the team collected an incredible 60 black bags full of rubbish. The bags were then delivered to the nearest recycling centre.
The litter pick is just one of the ways that Topek gives back to local communities. As a company, we’re committed to delivering social value with a focus on delivering local economic and environmental benefits. We engage with communities on projects and activities that are a benefit to them. It’s important to us to give back to the areas where we work as well as the areas where members of our team are based.
