The Great Huddersfield Cleanup
27th May 2021
Can you help?
After much planning and preparation, The Great Huddersfield Cleanup (GHCU) is almost here.
A community event, The GHCU invites people to sign up to litter-picking in key points identified as litter hotspots on the routes into the town centre, whether they can spare an hour, or a morning/afternoon.
Huddersfield Times is very grateful for the offers of support received so far! Blackrock Workwear has very generously donated 50 hi-viz vests to keep litter pickers safe near busy roads, as well as safety gloves. Camira at Meltham, and the Huddersfield Town Supporters Association (HTSA) have organised litter-picks to coincide with GHCU in their respective areas.
Wilkinson Woodward solicitors have kindly promoted the event to their employees and encouraged participation, and Huddersfield BID, Sustainable Huddersfield and TSL Volunteering have been promoting the event heavily on their socials. We look forward to welcoming Sophie from Huddersfield BID who has volunteered to get her hands dirty!
“The Great Huddersfield Cleanup will be giving routes into town the spring clean they need,” says Kim, one of the volunteers at Huddersfield Times. “A big push over this weekend will give Huddersfield a big boost before a busy summer!”
What can you do to help?
- Can you give an hour of your time to get stuck in?
- Can you donate bin bags or litter pickers (or the means to purchase them)?
- Can you help spread the word to as many people as possible?
