Capital Clean-up funding now available!

Now in its seventh year, the Mayor's Capital Clean-up campaign has already helped thousands of Londoners to get together and spruce up their neighbourhood. This year's campaign, in partnership with McDonald's, is expected to support around 200 events, more than ever before.

Last year almost 3,000 volunteers helped smarten up their area in 102 events across 30 London boroughs covering an area the size of 21 Wembley Stadiums. They collected more than 2,500 bags of rubbish, removed 91 tonnes of fly tipping, and planted 450 trees.

Key info:

  • Grants of up to £1500 and FREE starter kits are on offer to community groups and local businesses who want to join Capital Clean-up this summer.

  • Clean-up activity has to take place between May - August 2014!
  • Deadline for applications: March 24 2014!
