Ecosan held their annual Team building day on a beautiful July Summer’s Day at The Big Cat Sanctuary located in the heart of the Kent countryside. The Big Cat Sanctuary is set in 32 acres of grassland and the peace and tranquillity of the site provides excellent conditions for the successful breeding of the beautiful, yet endangered cats both large and small within the European Endangered Species Breeding Programme.

The Ecosan operations team gathered in the morning over breakfast to cover the business part of the day which saw Mick Yeomans being recognised for his exemplary performance throughout the period and he was presented with the Driver of the Year Award for 2020/21. In addition, a raffle was held and Service Controller Katie Mortley and Tammy Martin, our Credit Controller alongside Mick, were the lucky recipients of the opportunity to hand feed the lions at this prestigious sanctuary.

Following this, the Team enjoyed a BBQ lunch and learned more from James Hanaway who is Head of Partnerships for the Charity, about the passion that drives their principles at the Sanctuary. These are based on welfare, breeding, education and conservation, all of which underpin the core of their activities alongside their future aspirations for the organisation.

The afternoon culminated in a personal tour of the perfectly maintained site where clearly the cats are living their best lives in this very special place and where their enrichment is paramount to the work of the professionals that care so much about the conservation of our planet’s wild cats.

Sonja Wood, Managing Director of Ecosan Services, commented about the day: “This away day proved a great opportunity for the Team to get together and allow us the time to explore all the ways that we can become more efficient and provide the best service we possibly can to our customers. It was even better to be able to support one of our customers in the small way that we can and what we did learn from the day was that when a fully grown lion is pulling a chicken leg out of your hand, you definitely let go!”
