Volunteers rise to the challenge with Big Spring Clean and Charity Fundraiser

We had a big spring clean at Rock Foundation Caistor recently when a group of volunteers from South Humber Bank Power Station came along to help. They arrived with their work tools and equipment very eager to help us get the site shipshape for the summer.

The volunteers planted trees, tidied out and strimmed hedge bottoms, filled a skip and put in some new bases for the picnic tables. Michael and Ross (a couple of our students) also joined the team. Ross took charge of the clipboard and the list of jobs, ticking off each one as they were completed, whilst Michael was in his element, driving the tractor taking rubbish to the skip.

Everybody at The Rock is extremely grateful to all of the volunteers. It was a pleasure to have you all with us for the day. Thank you so much for your hard work and commitment in bringing this area back into its former glory to be enjoyed by all.

And the story doesn’t stop there…

Twenty volunteers (supported by 4 drivers) from South Humber Bank Power Station have also agreed to undertake the task of completing the National Three Peaks Challenge commencing on Friday 17th May 2024.

Considered one of Britain’s toughest outdoor challenges, the National Three Peaks Challenge takes in the dizzy heights of Ben Nevis (1,344m), Scafell Pike (978m) and Snowdon (Yr Wyddfa) (1,085m). Over the course of this task, we will trek around 26 miles and ascend to a total height of almost 3,000m.

All of this is being done to raise money for Rock Foundation and ultimately to support our students, who were delighted to hear the news.

Thank you in advance from all the team at South Humber Bank Power Station and the Rock Foundation UK Ltd.
