Environmental community fund is asking for nominations again

3 June 2019

EMR Jersey (the Scrapyard) has relaunched its Community Fund to support green initiatives which enhance the environmental quality of life on our Island and is asking for nominations.

With the metal recycling yard currently based in Bellozanne Valley, EMR Jersey knows how important it is to support the Islands’ sustainability.

The 2018 Community Fund donation was awarded to Seedy Sunday Jersey, an event that brings together green minded people including gardeners, seed savers and farmers as well as a range of community groups and organisations campaigning for sustainable food production and biodiversity.

Seedy Sunday Jersey Co-ordinator Fiona Murphy said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to EMR Jersey for supporting our green initiative. Having a sponsor for the event meant that we brought together more local supporters with a focus on sustainability, biodiversity, healthy living and community activity.”

Kerri Thomas, EMR Jersey Site Manager, said: “As a long-standing Jersey business we have the pleasure of meeting customers who are involved with a range of causes. This Fund is our way of supporting the Island and assisting with its sustainability by supporting projects that enhance our Islands’ environment. Whether you want to organise a clean up in your local area, or establish a green initiative, we want to hear from you.”

 

To apply, you can pick up an application form from the site in Bellozanne Valley or email Kerri.Thomas@emrjersey.je for an application form.

 

Terms and conditions will apply and successful applicants will be notified within 28 days of the closing date 30 June 2019.
