ALLEN & YORK Charity Rowing 150KM For Renewable World On World Water Day

In the UK the average person uses 150 litres of water a day, so on World Water Day (22nd March) TEAM ALLEN & YORK took part in a sponsored row, to row 150KM (equivalent of London to Leicester) in one day to raise money for the charity Renewable World .

We raised £339 and we'd like to say a HUGE Thank you to everyone who sponsored us!!


5K Runners!

Well done to the A&Y Team who took part in the Bournemouth Running Festival 5K on Saturday 1st October.   It was fun night time run, with people dressed up in all sort of illuminations!  Next year we are definitely getting the fairy lights out! Thank you to everyone who sponsored the team!! 
It's not too late for those that haven't.....

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!
