A team from the firm recently took time out to spend a day volunteering with The Conservation Volunteers at their new site. The Baker Tilly Mooney Moore team dedicated their efforts to a range of infrastructure tasks, including making seed beds, rabbit-proofing a newly installed polytunnel, planting hazel, and sowing birch seeds. This interesting environmental project offered the team a chance to bond further while contributing positively to the environment.
The project is part of a broader initiative to enhance biodiversity, promote reforestation, and minimise environmental inequalities in Northern Ireland. The Conservation Volunteers, alongside local volunteers, work diligently to protect conservation areas and expand woodland cover.
The Conservation Volunteers is a practical conservation charity whose mission is to create a more sustainable future by inspiring people and improving local communities. The organisation provides information, advice, education, and training to bring about practical change to enhance the natural environment.

Restructuring and Insolvency Manager Claire Mateer said: “Spending a day with The Conservation Volunteers was a great opportunity to step away from the office and be outdoors with my colleagues. We had a busy day of hands-on work including tree-planting and preparing seed beds, and I feel a real sense of achievement having learned new skills and made a meaningful contribution to the local environment. Thank you to the Baker Tilly Mooney Moore team for this worthwhile opportunity.”

Consulting Partner Donal Laverty added: “We were pleased to support our staff in spending a day with The Conservation Volunteers. Engaging in these group activities allows the team to connect while actively contributing to environmental preservation at a local level. At Baker Tilly Mooney Moore, we are committed to being mindful of our environmental impact and contributing to the mental wellbeing of our team. The day at the new site was an enriching experience, and we are looking forward to our next day working alongside The Conservation Volunteers”.
