Volunteers from Keep Wembley Tidy (KWT) and Wembley Central & Alperton Residents Association (WCARA) joined forces with Spurs legend and Club Ambassador Gary Mabbutt to help make Wembley cleaner and greener.
With the help of Tottenham Hotspur and the council, volunteers from both organisations showcased their love for their local neighbourhoods by organising a community clean-up as part of the borough’s ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign.
Kay Carroll, volunteer resident, said: “Our dedicated volunteers work tirelessly collecting litter and reporting fly-tipping hot sports. Each litter pick we collect 20-30 bags of waste comprising of beer cans and bottles, fast food packaging and confectionery wrappers. We have recently formed WCARA with a wider remit than KWT, and we are keener than ever to clean up our local area.”
Gary Mabbutt said: “Looking after the area you live in and helping the environment is something we should all take pride in. With Wembley being the Club’s home for this season, I am pleased to have been able to offer a helping hand to help keep the area tidier.”
The council’s ‘Love Where You Live’ campaign is inspired by the enthusiasm that many of residents demonstrate week in, week out, to improve their local neighbourhoods. More and more residents, like those from Keep Wembley Tidy, are getting involved to create a cleaner and brighter borough for everyone to enjoy.
