Staff at Ahmarra 'Go Green' for FSC Friday
Staff at FSC certified timber fire door manufacturer, Ahmarra, held an FSC Friday Open Day and Macmillan Coffee Event on Friday 27 September at their factory based in Portsmouth.
The aim of the day was to increase awareness of the FSC by offering tours of the factory. Visitors learned all about Ahmarra’s commitment to use sustainable materials when manufacturing their bespoke fire doors. Staff also took part in FSC awareness seminars throughout the day.
As FSC Friday coincides with Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, Ahmarra offered coffee and cakes for sale to visitors as well as a number of fundraising activities including a sponsored “Wax Off”.
Tim Doran, Managing Director, said "Our 'We Go Green' open day was great fun for both staff and visitors. As well as promoting the aims of the FSC, we managed to raise over £800 for a very worthy cause”.
As an FSC certified company, Ahmarra (FSC-C018847) is committed to using sustainable materials and reducing the impact of what they do on the environment.
