Housebuilder Challenge 2021: RPS supports The Youth Adventure Trust to provide a brighter future for teenagers

Read All Posts

We love building a close relationship with our clients and supporting causes close to their hearts, so when we were approached by Danny Czepiec, procurement manager of Ecofficiency, we were more than happy to back the firm’s upcoming quest to raise money for The Youth Adventure Trust.

The charity aims to inspire vulnerable 11 to 16-year-olds to lead more positive lives by helping them to develop their confidence, skills and resilience. Although this has proven difficult during 2020 due to Covid-19, the organisation hopes to get the teenagers back outdoors and involved in its adventure-based activities and camps, as well as providing online support, guidance and mentoring.

Two teams from Ecofficiency, which provides outsourced waste management and recycling services across the UK, will be tackling the Housebuilder Challenge 2021, which involves climbing 10 of the highest Brecon Beacon peaks – a total of 34kms with a huge 1,695m ascent. The firm, alongside a variety of other construction and house-building companies, has committed to raising funds for this great cause – the team from Ecofficiency have pledged to raise £4,000 and we were honoured to be able to support them in their latest venture.

Tom Hudson, the commercial director of RPS, said: “We understand that the pandemic has been difficult for many, which is why we have tried to give something back to those in need.

“We are proud to work closely with Ecofficiency, providing pallet recycling solutions for their construction customers. The decision to donate to the challenge was easy because it’s a great cause, which will give something back to those who have suffered from isolation or vulnerability during this tough time.

“Good luck to all those taking part and we hope you surpass your target.”

Ecofficiency will be participating in the challenge on Friday, July 9th.
