Wakefield students are litter picking good

Published 25 January 2016

WDH kick starts its annual Love Where You Live campaign in Lupset.

10 students from Wakefield College braved the cold and fog to help employees from St George's Community Centre and WDH complete a litter pick around Aysgarth in Lupset.

The event saw the group of students help out to fulfil the volunteering element of the public services course they are studying.

Everyone was enthusiastic and in high spirits despite the freezing temperatures, and 12 bags full of rubbish were eventually collected.

Simon Mosley, a tutor on the public services course at Wakefield College, said: “The students really enjoy the course and the volunteering element gives them a chance to give back and work in their local community while developing their confidence.”

Chris Croxall, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “It was a great way to start the Love Where You Live campaign for 2016. The Public Service students who took part did a fantastic job and made a big impact to the appearance of the area.”
