The Morpeth branch of builders merchant MKM has helped our its local litter picking group.
MKM Morpeth donated gloves, hi-vis vests and litter pickers to help the groups of volunteers. Two ‘litter blitz’ teams covered Morpeth town centre and surrounding estates, successfully filling 87 bags collectively.
The blitzes are part of Keep Britain Tidy’s Great British Spring Clean. The campaign, running from 23 March until 23 April, encourages ‘clean-ups’ all around the country. So far, the national scheme has involved over 500,000 Litter Hero volunteers.
Alun James is branch director at MKM Morpeth; he has been lending a helping hand to the litter picking efforts for over 11 months. He said: “Keep Britain Tidy’s scheme is a fantastic one that we were thrilled to get behind. We’re all so proud of our fantastic local areas – so we didn’t hesitate to lend a helping hand to the Litter Heroes.”
