New sculpture celebrates sustainability
A new sculpture by local artist David Mayne, celebrating the 'Greener Living Spaces' programme, has been unveiled outside the M&S Company Archive on campus.
'Greener Living Spaces' is delivered through a partnership between Marks and Spencer and the environmental charity Groundwork. With funding of £5.2 million raised by the 5p charge for food carrier bags introduced by M&S in 2008, the programme has supported the creation and improvement of over 100 green spaces for communities.
The 3.5m-high sculpture has been made with sustainable materials and incorporates 104 discs in the shape of a 5p piece - one for each 'Greener Living Space'.
