Eurolink Connect Ltd. turned 15 this year. Following the birthday celebrations recently held at the Stonehouse HQ, the company has planted a selection of 15 British Trees at Oldends Lane Playing Fields in Stonehouse to help support Youth Projects in the town.

On Thursday 20th March, Eurolink employees Claire Maddox, Donna Purveur and Derek Maddox joined local councillors Theresa Watt, Pam Swain, Gary Powell along with Youth members Douglas Vaughn and Miya Jakatua to help plant the trees around the recently finished skate park and youth centre.

The town council along with a number of youth groups such as SPL4SH, SA4Y (Stonehouse Action for Youth), Psalms for young people and Young Gloucestershire have all been involved in planning and raising money to help build a new youth building and skate park in Stonehouse. The target of £100k was reached in February and the excitement was described as being ‘electric’, knowing that all the hard work fundraising had paid off. The building of the park began in November 2013 but the landscape had not been completed due to weather, the park is now in constant use after it unofficially opened last month.

Eurolink recognise how much work that Youth projects do for the local community and wanted to get involved to celebrate the fantastic work that everybody has put into the recent projects. The15 trees planted symbolise 15 years of business for the local telecommunications business and help to finish the Landscaping of the skate park which will officially open in May along with the youth club, a great achievement for all involved.

Donna Purveur, Eurolink said; “It’s been a busy 1st quarter with 15 shoeboxes being sent to the troops in Afghanistan, guests who attended our Birthday party raised £720 for Winston’s Wish and now we’re delighted to donate these 15 trees to complete the landscaping of this terrific project.”

She continues “The youth projects do so much for the community and we as a local business wanted to get involved in some way. The 15 trees is not only significant to 15 years of business for Eurolink but it is our way of supporting and celebrating the hard work that everyone has put in, resulting in a fantastic new skate park and youth building that was requested from a group of young people back in 2012.”
