Opportunity of the Week @ Capital Clean-Up

This week's featured volunteer role is:

Volunteer - Wimbledon & Putney Commons, Capital Clean-up

Opportunity Description

Capital Clean-up is a partnership campaign led by the Mayor of London as part of his Team London volunteering programme. Our objectives are to:

  • Make the capital a cleaner, safer and greener place
  • Increase volunteering across London by encouraging Londoners to get involved in the cleanliness of their local environment.

The campaign is now in its fifth year of helping London communities take part in the maintenance of the places where they live and work. So far, we have coordinated over 1,000 clean-up events led by community groups, members of the public and local authorities. Clean-ups have included:

  • Thames riverbank and canal clean-ups
  • Litter picks
  • Habitat restoration; and
  • Graffiti removal

Spring is coming and Capital Clean-up is calling for active citizens to get involved and hold a community clean-up in the their area during these dates to truly give our capital a spring clean.

You can get involved by volunteering to be part of the event in Putney and Wimbledon Commons on 9th March 2013.

Groundwork London will be working to clean-up Putney and Wimbledon Commons' benches and litter.

The challenge will be to clean the site as much as possible during that day.

It is a great opportunity to tidy up your local community!
