Keep Britain Tidy are running a national campaign from 20th March to 13th April to encourage people to pick up litter and be involved in the country’s biggest mass-action environmental campaign.
This campaign is something that CCB fully supports and we encourage communities in Berkshire to take part. Last year 560,000 people in the UK took part and they are aiming for over 600,000 to join in this year.
Taking part will help towards not only help to transform the UK for better by keeping streets clean and protecting wildlife but also, you will help stop damaging materials entering the ocean which is ultimately causing worldwide pollution.
By heading to the Keep Britain Tidy website you can host a clean-up or join one near you. There are a number of resources available to enable you to host such as risk assessment forms, email templates and social media packs.
There are also awards for a variety of categories during the campaign. Awards such as ‘Most bags collected during the campaign period’, ‘Outstanding contribution to the Great British Spring Clean’ and ‘Best Team Effort’ as well as many more are up for grabs so be sure to check out what you could win by taking part.
