Chevron Traffic Management is delighted to be part of the team which has won the Area 9 SRN Alliance Charity Challenge and raised thousands of pounds for a number of charities.
As part of the charity challenge, the team which comprised of Highways England, Tarmac, AC Landscape and Treeworks, Kier and Chevron TM, selected Bentley West Primary School in Walsall and created a wonderful outside learning area for the teachers and pupils.
Martin Johnson, Chevron TM’s Area 9 Delivery Manager, who led the Chevron Team commented: “This was a fantastic challenge to get involved in for many reasons. Firstly, we have created a permanent learning space for pupils from Bentley West Primary School, focusing on the environment and biodiversity; secondly, we gave back to our local community and raised much needed funds for charity. It has been a great example of supply chain collaboration and I am delighted to have had the chance to get involved.”
The team revamped a neglected pond area planting 15 trees, installing planters, creating a wheelchair accessible pathway and building a stunning pagoda and benches for the pupils.
“Our supply chain were fantastic in supporting us with supplies and materials,” adds Martin. “It meant we could keep costs down and add more value to the charities. But for me, the most rewarding thing is knowing that we have created this wonderful space that children can enjoy for years to come!”
Martin was joined in the project by Chevron TM operatives, Brian Lowe, Mazer Hussain and Alan Dubickas who all did a fantastic job.
The impact of the project was summed up by Bentley West teacher Lindsay Hobbs who said that “the work and development in the forest area by the Area 9 team will accomplish improvement that I could not have achieved without significant support and this means the forest will be healthier and more sustainable for the children of Bentley in the future.”
Congratulations to all involved!
