Shell donation for garden

Shell presented the Green Tracks Gardening Project with 12 sets of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) on Wednesday, March 27.

The equipment will keep them safe and warm when working on community projects.

The Green Tracks Gardening Project offers volunteers from Fraserburgh, Peterhead and surrounding areas the opportunity to develop gardening skills and knowledge as well as making a positive contribution within the local community.

Deputy gas plant manager at Shell St Fergus, Bob Skinner, said: “It is important for Shell to help local community groups.

“Not only does the Green Tracks Gardening Project offer volunteers the opportunity to make a difference in their communities, it allows them to develop as individuals and help themselves.”

The Green Tracks Gardening Project was born out of a desire to see people who are recovering, integrate back into the community and employment and become contributing members of the societies in which they live.

Prior to the project, the area was considered waste land but now the grounds provide a garden area.
