CATS IN THE COMMUNITY
CATS Management Limited is committed to making a positive contribution to society, focusing on the communities in which we operate.
CATS has been part of the community in Teesside for more than two decades. Being a good neighbour is important to us and we are proud to have supported a number of different charities and organisations during this time.
Reducing our environmental impact has always been a priority for CATS. Various initiatives have been established to work towards the overall goal of no damage to the environment.
CATS is a member of INCA (Industry Nature Conservation Association), and also works closely with the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust to raise environmental awareness in the community.
Annual Community Teambuilding Event
Each summer, the CATS team holds a community team building event.
The workforce nominate a local organisation or charity that is in need of practical, hands-on help and a team of volunteers roll up their sleeves and carry out the work.
Workers from the terminal teamed up with experts from Natural England to rid the Teesmouth National Nature Reserve of litter.
The area supports a large number of water birds and the only breeding colony of harbour seals on the North East coast of England. As well as being an eyesore, keeping the area clean and tidy has an immediate, positive impact on the habitat.
Pupils from local primary schools have visited the CATS terminal at Seal Sands to learn about the relationship between nature and industry.
The visits were part of the Children Challenging Industry project, which is coordinated by the Chemical Industry Education Centre at the University of York and hosted in the Tees Valley by the North East Process Industry Cluster (NEPIC).
Raising Funds For Hartlepool Hospice
The team at the CATS Terminal on Teesside supported the efforts of two local fundraisers who ran from Lands End to John O’ Groats to raise money for Alice House Hospice in Hartlepool.
Alice House Hospice ensures people affected by a life-limiting illness or the death of a loved one have the care, comfort and support they need.
Teesside Charity Gets A Welcome Boost
A donation from the team at the CATS terminal on Teesside has given a unique local charity a welcome boost.
A donation of over £3,000 was made to Darlington’s Café JJ, which is staffed by a team of young adults with learning disabilities
CATS Support Local Blind Welfare Charity
Employees from the CATS terminal team in Teesside recently gave the Hartlepool Blind Welfare Association some hands on help.
Working at the charity’s local facilities, the team decorated the main hall of the building together with the toilets and kitchen areas, and provided a new gas cooker for the centre’s users.
