A “Board It Bin It” litter pick by stand up paddle board on Windermere is just one of almost 40 litter picks across Cumbria already registered to take part in The Great Cumbrian Litter Pick on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th April.
The event is being co-ordinated by landscape charity Friends of the Lake District in a bid to tackle the blight of carelessly chucked rubbish on our spectacular countryside. The charity is asking every parish, school and organisation in Cumbria to get involved to make this a really high profile and well-supported day to show the rest of the UK how proud we are of our county.
There will be a draw with a prize of £500 each for one community and one school who takes part, to be spent on environmental improvement or enhancement in your local area or school.
