Working with Falmouth University

Design exclusive to Bodmin Jail

In 2019 Bodmin Jail put a tender out to the talented students of Falmouth University; looking for an alternative design for a brand new range of Bodmin Jail souvenirs and collectables.

The Jail is pleased to announce that Lee Bates’ submission was successful – his unique artwork has been approved, and we have recently received the final finished T-shirt samples…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lee is a BA Drawing Student and has had work experience with Wessex Archaeology; now in his second year at Falmouth, he excels at Observational drawing and Urban Sketching, and in his own words the “occasional dinosaur”!

His exclusive Bodmin Jail design will be available on clothing & Jail accessories later this Spring.

Charity of the Year 2020

Bodmin Jail nominates the Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust as its supported charity for 2020.

Our Cornwall Air Ambulance flies more than 800 missions every year bringing vital emergency medical treatment in minutes to patients across Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly.

The trust does not receive any government support towards running costs and relies wholly on the essential donations & the generosity of the public, and sponsorship to keep flying.

2020 will be an exciting year for both parties: the Air Ambulance Trust seeing the arrival and launch of their £2.5m ‘Heli-appeal’ helicopter, and the Jail opening its doors to the public in May with a brand new £8.5m, immersive visitor Attraction.

Keep you eyes peeled for fundraising opportunities over the coming year and help support our amazing Air Ambulance service!

Plant a Tree – Protect a Tree

Seymac Distribution Services and Bodmin Jail have been working together to reduce their carbon footprint during the production and distribution of their marketing literature; working together for a better future.

 Plant a Tree – Protect a Tree

For every local tree that we pledge, a tonne of carbon will also be saved in the Brazilian Amazon via our VCS avoided deforestation programme. In this way, you will be offsetting carbon, planting and protecting forests and biodiversity in 2 continents.
Our Tree Planting projects are paired with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) approved carbon credits to guarantee the carbon offsetting.
This provides robust offsetting, together with all the biodiversity and community benefits that tree planting brings.

What is REDD+?
Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is a mechanism to create financial value for the carbon stored in forests. It offers incentives for developing countries to reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in low-carbon paths to sustainable development.
The United Nations created the REDD+ mechanism to quantify and value the carbon storage services that forests provide.

Tree Buddying Explained
Our UK and Kenya tree planting programme incorporate “Tree Buddying”. This means for each tree you pledge, as well as planting a tree, we also offset one tonne of CO2 through a VCS project, which guarantees offsetting one tCO2.

This ensures your carbon offsetting:
• is fully verified
• meets international standards – including meeting strict additionality requirements
• meets BSI’s PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality
• meets the Carbon Footprint Standard and
• continues to take additional CO2 out of the atmosphere during the life of the tree
• in addition to delivering all the other great benefits of the UK Tree and Kenya planting programmes.
