In light of the increasing concern around Covid-19 and the need to take precautions to stop its spread, Stone King has taken the decision to postpone its second Bath Litter Pick, that was due to take place on Tuesday 17 March.
We take our commitment to social responsibility very seriously and so feel postponing is the right course of action in light of the expected impact the virus may have on the community.
Stone King knows the businesses who signed up to take part share our values and we would like to thank you for your commitment.
We plan to restart this worthwhile community initiative when it is safe to do so.
Stone King’s Managing Partner Steven Greenwood said:
“We were delighted at the response to last year’s litter pick when we were joined by so many businesses who all shared our commitment to keeping Bath a beautiful city to live and work in.
“Stone King dates back to 1785 in the city and as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) we are committed to helping the local community with good causes.
“We are committed to being a socially responsible business, both internally and externally. We believe that it is crucial for us to make a positive impact on the communities in which we work and on our stakeholders.
“We hope other business will again join us and help keep our city looking its best.”
Stone King’s commitment to CSR encourages all its people to use one working day each year to volunteer, with many opting to use an hour of this time for the litter pick.
The event is part of a series of national initiatives by the firm, with its other offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Leeds and London also planning on holding community-minded events.
