Volunteers find 15 trolleys as they clean up the Gainsborough Uphill estate

Big tidy

Some of our people and residents from the Gainsborough Uphill community took time out of their weekend to do a ‘Big Tidy Up’ event as part of ‘Make a Difference Day’ on Saturday 22 October.

Volunteers split into two groups with one group cleaning up around the new Multi-Use Games Area and the other going to the play area and skate park near Sturgate walk.

In total around 15 Morrisons trolleys were collected from the area and were returned to the supermarket later that weekend.

Other interesting finds included a radiator, a vacuum cleaner, a pushchair and two children peddle bikes.

Volunteers were then rewarded with free hotdogs and sweets at the Gainsborough Uphill Community Centre. There was also a prize of two free family tickets to go see Gainsborough Trinity Football Club rewarded to the team who picked up the most litter.

Hannah Taylor-Dales who helped organise the event said: “Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to help with the Big Tidy Up event. It was brilliant to see the community come together and tackle rubbish in the area. We did a brilliant job of collecting so much rubbish and hopefully our actions will encourage others to get involved.”

We are looking at hosting other Big Tidy Up events in Gainsborough, Sheffield and surrounding rural areas in the near future so make sure you keep up-to-date on their Facebook and Twitter page.
