Jack Of All Trades

Taylor Wins For Number 5

A big well done to Taylor Thomas, who becomes ADO's 5th Jack Petchey winner. Taylor is one of ADO's Young Leaders and has been helping in many areas of the business since taking on that role. She is a great all rounder who can adapt herself to many of the roles required at ADO. Taylor has gained valuable work experience working as part of the ADO support team for many events over the last couple of years and is a valued member of the ADO team. She was voted by her peers for many reasons, but primarily for her kind, committed, helpful mentoring, always with a big smile across her face at all times. Her prize money will be put towards the Low Ropes equipment we purchased to give children and young people a great opportunity to learn new adventure and physical skills. Well done Taylor!

Animal Therapy News

That New Alternative Healthcare...Its Called Animal Therapy!

If ADO had not been working with snakes since 2009 for therapeutic purposes, you would have thought this news was simply amazing! Its hardly hot off the press for all those organisations and individuals that we have worked with over the years. Snakes are being used in the mainstream at a top London clinic to help patients overcome low self-worth and "communication issues". In fact ADO already work with our own snakes to cover a whole range of mental and physical ill health and disabilities, as we do with the other 50-odd other species we have. Its hardly news for us here at ADO, but good news that finally Animal Assisted Activities and Therapy are starting to get recognised in the mainstream.

ADO and IKON - Big On Quality - Lidl 'n' Nature

Bug Hotel is Simply Exemplary !

If you remember back in June, we installed a monster ten-story bug hotel with surrounding wildlflower garden and insect loving plants at the new Lidl construction site on Upper Wickham Lane, Welling in partnership with IKON Construction. The idea was masterminded by IKON Site Sustainability Manager Iain Henderson, who was quick to get his friendly neighbours ADO involved with Community Wildlife Garden Project. The project is now coming to its natural end as the building work advances within the site footprint and the garden has now been levelled for further site works, as the store is due to open in November.
