Checkprint staff helped to clear footpaths at Fosse Meadows Country Park

10 of the Hinckley-based company’s staff worked together in high temperatures to clear overgrown hedges and vegetation that had previously blocked pathways around the park, located in between Hinckley and Broughton Astley.

The team challenge came about as part of the firm’s membership of Leicestershire Cares, a not-for-profit organisation that works with local businesses to provide employee volunteering opportunities.

“Despite the extreme heat, both myself and others in the team rolled up our sleeves and worked incredibly hard to complete this important challenge, which will no doubt be beneficial to those visitors enjoying the country park this summer,” said Mark Temple, key account manager and Leicestershire Cares champion at Checkprint.

“The Fosse Meadows project resonated with us because of what we do. It was good to get into a forestry and to understand it more. It seemed like a good fit with the business.”

He added: “We believe that the experience enriches the staff and that this enrichment comes back through their work.”

Since becoming a member of Leicestershire Cares last year, Checkprint, part of the Tall Group, has taken part in various initiatives including refurbishing an adventure playground, delivering maths lessons to pupils from Battling Brook Primary School and visiting Hinckley Academy to help improve the reading of 11-to-14-year-olds.

Temple said that, given the positive feedback the company has received to date, its partnership with Leicestershire Cares will be a long-term commitment and the business will take part in more initiatives over the coming months.
