Dunstable Downs sees E.ON UK employees go green

More than 50 E.ON employees from a Bedford customer call centre recently volunteered to give a helping hand to National Trust's Dunstable Downs Estate in Whipsnade, Bedfordshire in preserving natural habitats which are vital to the environment.
Over a fortnight, the unpaid assistants cleaned a big section of scrubland on Dunstable Downs Estate as part of a continuing scheme to help put an area of genuine chalk grassland environment, which at present is getting worse by the day, to its former beauty.

An enthusiastic helper, Graeme Dinner, stated: "We all mucked in to get as many jobs done as we could, from clearing a huge pile of brambles to helping chop down trees.

"After a very rewarding, but long, day's work, we all felt great as a team and knew we'd done our bit for the environment, community and the local flora and fauna - as this type of grassland is the perfect habitat for rare flowers and butterflies.

"We'd all love the opportunity to help out again, but maybe when the weather is a bit warmer!"

Assistant Warden of the estate, Marshall Eason, stated: "It was a pleasure to have the E.ON volunteers here to help us out as we managed to get so much more work done than we'd be able to do alone.

"They were all in such good spirits about being outdoors and doing something positive for conservation in this area, and are welcome to come back anytime."

Business Energy Services provider, EON, finds and supports volunteering opportunities which provide a rewarding challenge for employees as part of its wider community relations program. EON employees in 2006, from the goodness of their hearts, used up more than 30,000 hours helping people out in their free time, on schemes in their neighborhoods. They also uncover and back schemes which require volunteers and are challenging for their staff, which in turn benefits the community as a whole.

One of the UK's leading Business Gas and Business Electricity companies, E.ON generates and distributes electricity, and retailing power and gas - and is part of the world's largest investor-owned energy and Gas Company, and employs roughly 18,000people across the United Kingdom.
