HOW WE HELP
Since 2008 Grist Environmental, have been collecting and recycling the waste generated at Temple Island Meadows during the Henley Women’s Regatta, Henley Royal Regatta and Henley Masters Regatta. We aim to minimise landfill and continually look to improve our recycling strategy.
The Copas Partnership are long term supporters of Charity Events at Temple Island Meadows.
Through our work with events and activities at Temple Island Meadows, we are pleased to support several local and national charities and community causes. In some cases we have the opportunity to host their events to help them raise vital funds for their organisations.
In particular it is important for us to support the world of rowing and help the sport develop for future generations. We are proud to do this by sponsoring and hosting Henley Women’s Regatta, by playing an important role and sponsoring Henley Masters Regatta, and by supporting other smaller events.
Our amazing Sales Manager, Verity Copas, completed the 100km Thames Path Callenge on 7th September 2019. She was the 17th fastest girl & 89th fastest overall. Phenomenal!

Take a look at some of the events we have and are currently supporting here.
We try to ensure that our venue and events are as accessible and inclusive as possible to everyone. We seek advice on all the improvements we carry out to ensure we are always making our facilities easier to use for all. That’s why we support the wonderful work that Whizz-Kidz do. They’re working hard to transform the lives of disabled children across the UK, providing the equipment, training and support they need to become confident young adults and reach their true potential.
Since 2016 we have supported Whizz-Kidz at Temple Island Meadows during Henley Royal Regatta, where they have raised almost £15,000! We are very proud to have worked with them to generate these much needed funds, which have a truly life-changing impact for disabled children and young people. The amount raised is enough to fund two specialist powered wheelchairs for children who cannot get suitable equipment from the NHS, and three ten hour Wheelchair Skills training courses for up to 10 young people. These wheelchairs give children freedom and independence, enabling them to play, learn and develop the skills and confidence they need to build bright futures.

We would like to thank all those who have donated over the last four years and look forward to working together in 2020 to unlock young disabled people’s potential.
Here at The Copas Partnership we are proud to support Macmillan any way we can.
In the office we take part in the Macmillan ‘Worlds Biggest Coffee Morning’. There has been some fabulous baking over the years and the Directors always match any money raised.
At Temple Island Meadows we are proud to host and support the Macmillan Mighty Hike, Thames Path. It’s great to see so many smiley faces cross the finish line after a lovely day walking along the Thames.
Our amazing Sales Manager, Verity Copas, is running 100km in 24 hours on 7th September 2019 with the goal of raising £4,000 for this amazing charity. All donations are gratefully recieved: Sponsor Verity
