Well done to the A&Y Team and supporters who were there on Saturday to take part in our second Splash in the Park competition to raise money for Julia’s House. It was a gloriously sunny day and the team performed fantastically – taking us into 4th place over all.

Green Days


ALLEN & YORK commit to support local community projects, by volunteering 1% of our time to help with charitable activities.

We volunteered recently for the Dorset Wildlife Trust and Creative Kids - Two amazing local charities to us.

Group 1
Helped re-gravel the nesting bird islands in the lagoon at the Brownsea Island Nature Reserve for the Dorset Wildlife Trust.  We got our wadders on and shovels out and shifted about 4.5 tonnes of gravel across the saline lagoon!  It was REALLY hard work, but very rewarding and great fun! (main photo is of the group)

A BIG thank you to Dorset Wildlife Trust for organising the day and to our mighty volunteers who braved the weather to create an enhanced nesting environment and new home for a wealth of seabirds and waders.

Group 2
Pulled on our overalls and got our paint brushes out,  to decorate a new kids arts centre for Creative Kids, which offers free access to art & design for children in the most deprived communities in the area.

We had a great time getting creative, making the windows dazzling and shifting quite a lot of rubbish!  We were pretty tied by the end of the day, but Marina and Chris returned the next day to finish off an amazing space themed mural, the middle of which will be a screen for multimedia presentations! (to see the space wall visit our Facebook page)

Thank you so much to Cary at Creative Kids and Volunteer Bournemouth who helped us to organised the day!
