05.04.2016 - Mick George Ltd gives local schools the chance to win £1,000
As part of its drive to educate children on recycling, local business Mick George Ltd with the help of its futuristic friends the Recyclebot.Bots are giving school children in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire the chance to win £1,000 for their school and a trip to a waste and recycling depot.
The initiative aimed at providing youngsters with a better understanding of the impact that waste has on the environment, encourages them to reduce, re-use and recycle for a greener future.
Keen to bring a fresh and fun approach to the topic, Mick George Ltd has set the challenge for children, alone, in pairs or small groups to create their very own Recycle.Bot out of recyclable materials whilst providing information on special superpowers to help the environment.
Each participating pupil will receive a Recycle.Bot badge and certificate, along with a waste and recycling guide filled with facts and tips on how to reduce waste and help protect the environment.
All entrants should be received by 30th May at www.mickgeorge.co.uk/recyclebots, with a photograph of your Recycle.Bot uploaded by 1st July. The three Regional winners will be selected on 11th July, with the winning applicant as well as their school and classmates being rewarded with the prizes on offer.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Everyday we see various stories related to the state of the environment, now and in the future. As with many of our initiatives, such as the ‘Safer Roads’ campaign, we’re continuously engaging with local schools to help educate on important matters that will influence children forever. The Recycle.Bots is no different.’’
Stump continued: ‘’We have done similar competitions in previous years with ‘Skips for Schools’, which was very well received but we wanted to freshen it up this time around. Adding a little creativity is likely to incentivise the children to get involved but also helps with other areas of the curriculum’
