And to carry on the good work we have increased the figure for this year!
Environet supply, free of charge, our Japanese knotweed identification service as the plant can be notoriously tricky to identify.
The process is simple – If you think you have Japanese knotweed simply take a picture and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and once received one of our experts will examine the picture for you and let you know if it contains the dreaded knotweed!
As mentioned, the service is free, but what we do ask in return is a donation via our JustGiving page for the service offered*.
We support 4 charities: RNLI, British Heart Foundation, Cancer Research and The Archie Lloyd Foundation. We recently added our support to The Archie Lloyd Charitable Foundation, an inspirational new charity set up by the Lloyd family in memory of their son Archie. The charity seeks to inspire and motivate young people by creating a foundation which will award scholarships targeted at those who have not had the opportunities afforded to Archie through his education. These young people will be mentored and assisted through a programme of further education, for example through coaching qualifications and travel.
And so, on to our thanks, and plans for the future.
Firstly, we would like to personally thank all of you who have donated so far. We initially set our fund raising target for the charities at £1000, a figure which we quickly reached and passed, so again thank you.
So now we are setting our goals even higher. We have recently increased our goal to £5000! And when we hit that, we will increase it again!
If you suspect you may have Japanese knotweed, and would like to find out how to remove it, please call our team of experts on 01932 868 700.
