Local girl really is the ‘pick of the litter’

April is 12 years old and she felt so strongly about raising money for Dementia UK that she decided to do a sponsored litter pick!

Weldon Village online went along to support.

The Great big litter pick commenced at 10am this morning (October 19th) with many local families turning up to support and join in. We even welcomed a mother and daughter team who saw what was happening and just wanted to join in on their way home from the shop!

With a good 40 minutes spent in the play park next to the school field we then turned our attention to the footpaths and verges around the rest of the village. Bridge street, Rose Avenue, Stamford Road, and High Street to name but a few. It really was a fabulous morning with everyone, young and old joining together to clean up and raise money for such a good cause.

You can see just how much litter was collected which we estimate weighed over 50 kilos!

April has so far raised £225! But there is still time to sponsor her! You can contact us here at WVO or visit her Just Giving page HERE

Well done April and everyone that turned up to help and support.
