How we make the world a better place.
Welcome to our Corporate Social Responsibility page
Because you're here we already know that we share a love of the planet and everything that calls it home.
We'd like to tell you a bit about what we do to make the world a better place and the partners we choose to help us achieve our goals.
We simply LOVE The Word Forest. They do so much good and are the nicest people too.
Let's face it. When it comes to keeping a body healthy, good strong lungs and clean air to breath are key. That goes for planet Earth too and deforestation is stripping away the planet's ability to breath deep and clean.
By supporting the Word Forest we are help them to plant trees near the equator where those trees will grow at rapid speeds, equally important are The Word Forest projects to support the local community around our forest by providing jobs supporting the young trees we help to plant and by build classrooms.
Our rent each month goes to support Lyme Regis Development Trusts, who's strategy is to: Build local employment and the local economy, especially off-season, by developing innovative opportunities for individuals, community groups and employers. Create the basic foundations to succeed for those people most in need by investing resources in long term social support projects.
