Case studies

 

Mace

Mace is a long-term partner of London Wildlife Trust and over the last six years more than 2,000 Mace employees have given their time to help nature conservation across London.

Mace

Mace has supported us through substantial volunteer support, funding, and donations of materials, technical knowledge and access to specialist contractors to complete important conservation work, and open up green spaces to local communities.

Most recently, in 2017 Mace supported the preparation of our Huckerby’s Meadows nature reserve, allowing us to open it to the public three years earlier than planned. In 2018, Mace efforts have been focused on Walthamstow Wetlands, where volunteers and specialist subcontractors are giving 370 days-worth of time to help create a new outdoor classroom, bird hide, floating nesting rafts for migratory birds, and habitat improvements for local wildlife.

Emma Roebuck, our Nature Reserve Manager at Walthamstow Wetlands, says: "Mace are building a SEND classroom and bird hide on site, managed by Mace project managers from concept to completion, enabling us to extend our engaging outdoor education curriculum to school children with special educatory needs and disabilities – which is absolutely brilliant."

Isabel McAllister, Director of Sustainability at Mace, says: "Our long-term partnership with London Wildlife Trust has been rewarding and exciting for our staff. We recognise the need to open up the city’s green spaces to communities - by restoring and improving wildlife habitat we are helping to create more wild areas that will bring education and wellbeing benefits to Londoners."
