Est. in 2017, BlueRock was founded by Seb Gauthier, impact-entrepreneur and designer, specialising in eco-friendly bamboo toothbrushes for adults and kids. Thanks to our customers, over 12,000 brushes have been saved from landfill or ending up in our oceans.
We were delighted to receive a funding donation last week from John Lewis & Partners.
Dawn Stokoe, Community Liaison Co-ordinator presented Chief Ranger John Shaw and our Fab Friday volunteer group with the cheque, during a visit to a sunny Keep Hill Wood in High Wycombe.
Last Friday Rangers Andrew and Dan took Fab Friday out on a cleaning mission of the Wye from High Wycombe Retail Park to the back of the old Homebase store at Wye Dene. Four shopping trolleys (kindly returned to their correct location), a bicycle, and thirty rubbish bags later, we called the deed done and returned to base.

Staff at The Royal Star & Garter Home in High Wycombe have helped clean up a
stretch of the Hughenden Stream as part of a community project.
They donned wellies to pick out bottles, crisp packets, cigarette ends and other
rubbish from the part of the stream running behind the new care home, which
will welcome its first residents this month (April).

At the end of these sessions Chiltern Rangers engaged with 157 young people and 90 adult volunteers who contributed 371 hours of volunteering on four sites in the South West Chilterns. We worked with two schools new to Chiltern Rangers as well as Bucks Young Carers and are grateful for the support of the Woodland Trust, BBOWT and Lord Parmoor.
