Harlequin celebrates 25 years in partnership with The Woodland Trust
19th October 2006
Leading storage tank supplier Harlequin Oil Tanks, has embarked upon a year long partnership with the Woodland Trust, to celebrate the pioneering plastic tank manufacturer's 25th. birthday.
Since 1 April 2006 and until 31 March 2007, a tree will be dedicated to the Woodland Trust for every Harlequin Bunded Tank, Fuel Station or Waste Oil Tank sold. The trees will be dedicated at sites in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Similar arrangements are being made for Harlequin tanks sold in the Republic of Ireland.
Harlequin's Managing Director Brian McCann says, “Having pioneered environmentally responsible fuel storage for 25 years, we are delighted to celebrate our Silver Anniversary in partnership with the Woodland Trust. As a result of our birthday celebrations, a minimum of £25,000 will be donated to the Woodland Trust to mark our 25th. birthday.”
The Woodland Trust's Sue Lockwood says, “Dedicating trees is a great way to mark a significant event or anniversary. Woods are crucial to sustaining life on our planet. They enhance the quality of our lives and the environment with their richness and biodiversity, their colours and landscapes. Many species depend totally on woodland for survival. Thanks to the support of Clarehill Plastics Limited we will be able to care for and manage these important habitats for years to come.”
