Jockey Club Catering, the food and beverage partner to The Jockey Club, participated in the UK’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign, Keep Britain Tidy’s annual Great British Spring Clean.
Keep Britain Tidy is an independent charity with three goals – to eliminate litter, end waste and improve places. 14 teams with a total of 60 colleagues, clocking over 180 hours, helped collect over 100 bags of litter from their local areas in an effort to help give back to the communities they live and work in.
A team was assembled from each of The Jockey Club’s racecourses; Aintree Racecourse, Carlisle Racecourse, Cheltenham Racecourse, Exeter Racecourse, Epsom Downs Racecourse, Haydock Park Racecourse, Huntingdon Racecourse, Kempton Park Racecourse, Market Rasen Racecourse, Newmarket Racecourses, Nottingham Racecourse, Sandown Park Racecourse, Warwick Racecourse and Wincanton Racecourse – to help collect litter.
In addition to picking litter, in the Great British Spring Clean Keep Britain Tidy initiative, work was done to create clean beaches, parks and streets, as well as creating sustainable practices and eliminating unnecessary waste.
Jockey Club Catering supports Keep Britain Tidy’s ethos of working with individuals, businesses, organisations and public bodies to help care for the environment on their doorstep and ensure people live and work in places they can be proud of and prosper in.
Nick Campbell, managing director at Jockey Club Catering, said: “We’re really proud to help improve the environments we live and work in. It’s really important that Jockey Club Catering is an organisation that can give back to the community. Well done to all who participated in the 2019 Great British Spring Clean.”
