After our Great Plastic Pick Up back in May, we entered our event and idea for our litter recycling project into the Daily Mail & Keep Britain Tidy’s competition to be in with a chance of winning an amazing prize, three lucky groups were rewarded a £10,000 prize – AND WE WERE ONE OF THEM!
We are delighted to have won, this will make a huge difference to our community litter clearing activities!
Thank you so much to those of you who participated and those of you that regularly take part in our monthly litter picks.
To continue this work, we will put this money towards more litter picking equipment (as some of you may remember, we ran out last time) and also into machinery to help us convert the litter into useful products for community benefit (and we’ll also teach others how to do this too). Exciting times ahead!
Thank you all for you support and just in case you haven’t got these dates in your diary, the next litter picks will take place on the 26th August and 23rd September, meeting at 10am at Bramshall Park.
