Local hospice receives third donation of recycled timber groynes

Mackley has made a third donation of old timber groynes, extracted from a project in Selsey, to a local charity – where they will be used to improve the communal garden.

The groynes were delivered to St Barnabas, a Worthing-based hospice which provides palliative care to adults with advanced progressive life-limiting illnesses.

The hospice has previously used the groynes to create vegetable patches and flower beds in their communal garden.

David Knapp, Mackley’s Business Development Manager, said: “At Mackley, we are committed to working in partnership with the people who live and work in the areas where we operate.

“As a result, we support a wide range of local charities and community initiatives – and I can think of none more worthy than St Barnabas.

“We are excited to see how this latest delivery of redundant timber groynes will be used.”

Putting recycled timber to good use
This is the latest in a number of ways Mackley has found to put redundant groynes and other timber to good use.

In November 2019 and March 2020, Mackley separate donations to St Barnabas.

Meanwhile in June 2020, sea-distressed timber – taken from groynes demolished as part of a scheme on the Kent coast – were put to good use at Exmoor National Park.
