A Bury St Edmunds company has broadened its community links - sponsoring two gardening initiatives and holding a litter pick.
Treatt, which supplies ingredient solutions for the flavour, fragrance and consumer goods industries, is supporting Bury in Bloom awards schemes Busy Green Fingers and Senior Green Fingers.
Busy Green Fingers, now in its second year, is open to all pre-schools and nurseries while the new Senior section will involve seven of the town’s nursing homes and day centres.
Awards will be handed out in July.
Daemmon Reeve, group CEO of Treatt, said: “We wanted to become involved not only with the younger members of our local community but also that of the older generation, which is why we are sponsoring the Senior Green Fingers initiative as well.
“I am sure that everyone involved will get a lot of enjoyment out of these fantastic initiatives.”
Melanie Lesser, Bury in Bloom co-ordinator, added that the sponsorship will enable them to offer certificates and gardening vouchers for all involved as well as funding the award presentation parties.
Meanwhile, about 20 staff from Treatt, in Northern Way cleaned around the industrial estate and along the footpath through to the Mildenhall Road estate last Friday.
They managed to fill two platform trucks in just two hours.
In the past year community volunteers across West Suffolk have collected about 800 sacks of rubbish. Visit
