Disadvantaged areas of Liverpool in the UK recently benefited from our CSR activity Tree Mend Us. 130 participants rolled up their sleeves and got digging in a ‘tree planting treasure hunt’ designed to breath life into 11 city sites.

Healthcare delegates on conference at The Hilton formed 15 teams eager to tackle the challenge of planting over 130 trees in carefully researched locations all within striking distance of the Hotel. Armed with trowels, watering cans and armfuls of dinky little tree saplings, the teams set off with a mission to ‘give back’ to the community.

Catalyst Teambuilding were keen to make sure Tree Mend Us had lasting impact. A great deal of time went into negotiating with local representatives to ensure the most worthy of causes benefited from our clients' direct action.

All credit to the energy of this group who worked together to plant all the sites in an incredibly short time frame. Many of the voluntary organisations they helped have to work with limited budgets, but the personal dedication of their members has had an amazing effect on their community and environment. Schools, Community Centres, Resident Associations and Feed The Homeless schemes were all very grateful for the groundwork this activity achieved.

With an increasing focus on CSR related teambuilding requests, Catalyst Teambuilding are committed to releasing more team concepts with a conscience! Keep an eye on our Community and Environment section for future developments.
