Christmas Blog Post – Merry Christmas from Bandicoot!

Christmas 2021 Blog Post


2021 has been a roller coaster. Many ups, many downs and most importantly we are finishing the year with a business round-up and a Christmas themed questionnaire our team have answered.


Christmas Decorations

As a business, we’d like to think we get into the festive spirit. From decorating the office on the 1st of December to attending the Burnley Bondholder End-Of-Year celebrations just a week later. It really is a great pleasure of ours to celebrate the occasion and with lovely people!


Community Work

From planting trees to helping people, this year, like every year, we pride ourselves in giving back, helping the community, and trying to save/contribute to the planet.

Tallying up on our final day of work, we’d like to proudly announce we, alongside Tree Sisters have planted 1,303 this year!

That equates to 6 football fields worth of trees! And 28 tonnes of CO2 offset per year!

Secondly, and every year we like to help the people in our community – Burnley. The town has given us so much, so we like to repay our fortunes by donating to the less fortunate. This year we decided to take a boot full of food and chocolate to Life Church.

The food will then be distributed to families in time for Christmas!
