Awards update and great Ecotherapy feedback

Award for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management Collection Crew of the Year 2019 Finalist certificate

Out of 300 nominations for 14 different awards our Recycling Team placed in the top three of the 2019 Awards for Excellence in Recycling and Waste Management for Collection Crew of the Year. They were hoping to win but are still chuffed to have made the shortlist – and we know they are the best! We were also finalists of the Charity Governance Awards, Improving Impact category.

Meanwhile, our Ecotherapy Woodwork Group, has featured in a recent BBC Radio York Facebook video. This followed soon after we got this lovely feedback from one of our Ecotherapy participants:

“…St Nicks has felt like a real haven when life has got rough. Creative Writing has helped me to translate my brain to words, book group has got me back into reading and helped me to grow in confidence, and get gardening re-connected me with the world around me.’’

It is so good to know that connecting people to nature can make such a difference!
