A Marlow based business dedicated a day to do good causes in the town.

The BWP Group, who are based on Third Avenue, spent the whole of Thursday, October 31,  across Marlow where they helped out in several shops and schools.  

One team got to work at Danesfield School, where volunteers helped out by painting a new music room and improved the school’s car park by filling in potholes.

Another group of employees from the BWP Group went to the new zero-waste shop, Seed1, on the High Street, where they helped the environmentally-friendly shop re-fill their food station and compiled gift sets for shoppers to purchase.

On the river at Longridge, BWP staff helped to prepare the centre for winter closure, where they brought in the boats, emptied and cleaned out the water zorbing pool and managed the general ground maintenance, by pruning trees and taking out weeds.

Finally, in the Shaw Trust charity shop, a group from the BWP Group created a new vintage-themed window display to showcase the array of vintage and retro stock available, before helping to sort donations, steam clothes and transfer exciting new stock onto the shop floor.

BWP Group’s CEO Richard Beasley said: “The whole day was a roaring success; staff thoroughly enjoyed the chance to do a good deed and get truly involved in the local community.

“It is an initiative we’ll be repeating, and we also plan to develop ongoing initiatives that allow BWP to support the local community on a regular basis.

“We reap the benefits of being located in a town like Marlow, so we want to ensure that we give something back too.”
