Youngsters rolled up their sleeves for a royally good clean as they took on grime crime ahead of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
Around 15 litter pickers between five and 11 years old wasted no time in clearing the Asta Hub garden and neighbouring estate in Canning Town last Friday.
The ‘Rubbish Raiders’ cleared ten bags of litter as part of the community hubs play project. The litter pick was run in partnership with CleanupUK’s Beautiful Boroughs Project and the Clean for the Queen campaign, .
Asta hub manager Tracy Smith said the Beautiful Boroughs Initiative “instilled a sense of pride for their area and community for those participating”.
She added: “It is a fantastic initiative that brings people of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds together with a common goal of cleaning up their own neighbourhoods.”
