Stacey Kettner (pictured) collected a certificate and donation from Patricia Almond on behalf of the IW Branch of Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE-IW) for the Spectrum staff litter pick at Slade Road. The big litter pick was part of the autumn staff day at Oakfield which also saw Spectrum teams repainting playgrounds and planting edible plants. Staff, armed with wellies and CPRE-IW’s litter grabbers, cleared a total of 13 bags of litter from Spectrum’s Arc green space and from the Monkton Mead, the stream that runs through their woodland.

CPRE-IW supports litter picking efforts around the Island and were pleased to present Spectrum with cheques totalling £100. £50 has been donated to the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust to thank them for their help with Green Army and £50 will go to Homeless International, helping towards Spec-trum’s fundraising target for the Nepal Challenge.

This was just one of many litter picks we have sponsored this year. In total we have made awards to Bembridge Community Library; IW Scouts`2015 Jamboree in Japan: Prostate Cancer IOW; Footprint Trust; Surfers Against Sewage; ASTO sail training at UKSA; IYWAC [Youth Sailing]; The EM Hospice; Homeless International; Hants and IOW Wildlife Trust and the 1st Godshill and Rookley Cubs (to subsidise activities for children from low income families)

Pat is now asking for suggestions about how we go about continuing this work in 2015.
