When We Need You
From 30/05/2008 onwards
We need help from anyone interested in the environment with local knowledge and contacts. This opportunity is a good way of meeting new people, and of feeling useful in your community. You may know of groups who are fund-raising for something in particular who would like to do a sponsored clean-up. You will be helping to raise money for them and for a water aid assisted water scheme in the third world. Not least it is such a pleasure to go down on to a beach after it has been cleaned. We have such beautiful ones but so often they are despoiled by litter. Children have involved their parents in clean-ups and it is heartening to hear volunteers of all ages comment on the difference their efforts have made.
