Total Reuse were given the opportunity to chat to HRH Prince Charles at the Business In The Community celebration event held in Liverpool today.
Total Reuse have been working in partnership with a number of local Business Connectors for the past 12 months. Business Connectors are talented individuals seconded from business, trained by BITC and placed in communities of greatest need increasing the positive impact of business in local communities by harnessing the expertise and energy of business people to tackle local challenges.
Business in the Community is the Prince of Wales 'Responsible Business Network' and he became President of the organisation in 1985, in keeping with his belief that business can be an actor of change to support the regeneration of deprived communities.
To celebrate 30 years of his Presidency, BITC organised a celebration at the Homeground Partnership in Scotland Road Liverpool. Liverpool North Connector, Tracy Nairn, invited Total Reuse to the event. What the company didn't know was that Tracy had nominated Total Reuse to be introduced to the Prince.
During the conversation Total Reuse were able to explain who they were, what they did, and why they did it including details of the Tool Sheds, Total Clearance and some of the people they work with. When HRH asked Total Reuse to send him some more details they handed him leaflet and will follow it up with additional information.
It's not often that a small company like Total Reuse are given the opportunity for an uninterrupted conversation with someone so high profile as the Prince of Wales especially when there is some synergy with environmental and social history issues.
