Lincolnshire Co-operative take part in annual Spring Clean-Up

This story is over

Lincolnshire Co-operative are encouraging members of the local community to volunteer in their annual Co-op Spring Clean, which will see them come together with the Co-operative’s staff to clean up the local environment.

Together with environmental groups and councils, Lincolnshire Co-op colleagues will be swapping their day jobs to look after the local area, cleaning the outdoors by litter picking, freshening up facilities, painting fences and improving popular nature trails.

People from the community are also being encouraged to take part at the 14 locations across Lincolnshire and Newark.

All the clean-ups are set to last from two to five hours, and volunteers don’t have to be a Lincolnshire Co-op member to join in.

For most clean-ups, booking is not essential, and volunteers are simply asked to arrive at the meeting point on the day.

Lincolnshire Co-op Community Co-ordinator Danielle Budworth said: “We’re excited to get stuck into some volunteering projects in our communities to help look after our local environment.

“This year is our biggest yet and we’re joining onto lots of clean-ups that have been organised by local green groups and councils across Lincolnshire and Newark.

“Our aim is to get some of our colleagues to lend a hand at these events as well as spread the word and get more of the public involved.”

“We’re going to more events than ever before and we can’t wait to help these groups so that they can continue to make a positive difference to the environment in our communities.”
