Lucy says:

“This is our way of giving back to restore what we call ‘the lunges of our earth’.

“We know times have been incredibly tough and we are here for businesses needing support through these critical times.”

The company is working with B1G1 – In 2007, B1G1 started with a simple idea: “What if every business could make a difference in their own way, just by doing what they normally do?” With more than a decade of work, this simple idea has now become a global movement.

Isle Book-keep says it is also aiming to turn the tide on unemployment, as well as tackling environmental issues, by taking part in is the ‘Kickstart’ scheme through the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB).
