The Great Cumbrian

Litter Pick 2018

RESULTS!

Well the statistics have now been collated and the photos collected and I am delighted to announce that over 1,300 people took part in nearly 60 separate litter picks right across Cumbria collecting 353 sacks of rubbish.

As one of the participating groups I hope you are, rightly, proud of your contribution. We are truly grateful for your efforts and for coming together with so many others to help to clean up Cumbria.
