News and Projects that the Trust Has Funded
It's Not All Rubbish at Lady Hawkins School
Lady Hawkins School is constantly encouraging and increasing eco awareness amongst its students and thanks to funding from the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust recycling now plays an important part in this.
Lisa Williams, Chairperson for the School Council put forward an application to the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust for the purchase of six purpose-built recycling bins to be placed around the school grounds; three for plastic bottles and three for cans.
The Trust awarded over £800 for the purchase of these bins which will have a green bottle aperture, graphics and text for “Plastic Bottles Only”, and a red can aperture, graphics and text for “Cans Only”.
Kevin Gwynne, Bursar for Lady Hawkins said “We already encouraged our students to recycle as much as possible and with these new bins it is easier for them to make a conscious effort to recycle rather than just throwing away their rubbish.”
John Garbutt, Chairman of the Kingspan Insulation Community Trust said “One of the four objectives of the Trust is to support the conservation, protection and improvement of the physical and natural environment and this application certainly does this! With the students having the facilities available to actively recycle small things such as plastic bottles and cans hopefully they will learn the importance of managing the resources they have and transfer their knowledge to other items.
