"Remap custom-makes equipment to help disabled people live more independent lives"
BBS were approached by the Bristol treasurer: Bob West to support a fantastic local initiative to provide materials to be used in creating rehabilitation activity boards for Burns victim patients at Southmead Hospital. The purpose of these boards is to provide occupational therapy to help invoke muscle memory for burn victims to use every day items around the house such as tap heads.
In 2021 BBS were invited to partipate in the PHG REV 150- an epic two day cycle challenge covering over 150 miles across the Yorkshire Dales & North Yorkshire Moors to raise funds for the Woodlands Trust & Surfers Against Sewage. Four members of BBS staff participated in this gruelling challenge with 70 other PHG members & suppliers to succesfully raise over an incredible £124,000!
In true BBS fashion; we gave 100% and decided to go the extra mile by reviewing how BBS as a business could do its bit for the environment and will continue to evolve. Immediately we converted to using biodegradeable bags to save 70,000 plastic bags going to landfill every, single, year.
