Our weekly update on all things Social Enterprise related.
The collaboration between The Cowshed, Amuka Foundation and FastTrack Fit Camp continues. We’ve been assessing and donating shoes to these two charities before sending the remaining shoes to our collection charity.
- I’ve 6 large bags to be collected.
- 2 medium bags of children’s football boots to go to Amuka Foundation.
- 2 medium bags of children’s and adults shoes to go to The Cowshed.
- Half of a new bag being filled already.
The roundabout sponsorship hasn’t gone any further. I’ve decided that the money can be better spent on other projects given that I wasn’t going to have a huge amount of influence on how well the roundabout was maintained.
I launched our 100 Day Fitness Litter Picking Challenge. Full details here. Please join us wherever you are. You can make a difference!
I’ve been asked to speak at two events next month on the Social Enterprise side of the business. I am chuffed to bits with this and I look forward to sharing what we’re doing at FastTrack Fit Camp with others.
The first one is on Wednesday 11 September. Full details here if you’d like to come along.
I met with Mark Stewart a landscape gardener on Saturday at a local primary school. It’s a school where one of our clients is Deputy Head and we are going to buy some trees for them with some of our profits.
It was very interesting. We spoke about the right site, how to stake, what spread of coverage, what drop of pollen and leaves, soil quality and speed of growth.
We’ve got an idea of trees to consider and are aiming for a planting session in November.
FastTrack Fit Camp is an outdoor fitness business with the focus on improving people on the inside so they feel good on the outside. In 2019 FastTrack Fit Camp became a Social Enterprise and committed to distribute a minimum of 50% of profits back to community environmental projects each year with the goal of helping our local citizens feel good whilst being outside too.
