We are very excited to announce that our funding application to Barrow Community Trust has been successful!

The money awarded from the Cumbria Grassroots Fund totalling £2535 will be used to buy the following equipment:

  • 50 x Heavy Duty Litter Pickers

  • 25 x Children's Litter Pickers called Graptors

  • 25 x Bin Bag Hoops

  • 500 x Heavy Duty Black Bin Bags

  • Large First Aid Kit

  • Adult High Vis ZEST Vests

  • Children's High Vis ZEST Vests

Our new community action group is off to a flying start with securing this funding, and we can't thank Barrow Community Trust enough for their fantastic support.

As you can see from the above picture we have already mocked up a design for our new ZEST Vests and they will soon be sent off to print.

Our first community litter pick is set to take place on Sunday 28th April in the Red River area, 10am - 11.30am. Everyone is welcome to attend, please meet at Tesco Metro.
