We're helping people with dementia to enjoy the benefits of walking
Get your colleagues together and feel the benefits of walking more this spring
Environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful and leading UK bakery retailer Greggs have teamed up to encourage locals to take part in the Clean Up Scotland 2017 Spring Clean.
Keep Scotland Beautiful are specifically challenging Paths for All volunteers and walkers to complete a litter survey, as part of a Clean Up, during walks planned in April and May 2017. In return, all registered Clean Up events in this time will be able to apply to receive free snacks for the volunteers, courtesy of Greggs.
Keep Scotland Beautiful launched their litter survey this year to generate a community led picture of Scotland’s local environmental quality. Whilst all Clean Up participants are encouraged to take part, we are particularly interested in hearing from those who are enjoying outdoor places on a regular basis, such as Paths for All volunteers and participants.
Community projects officer, Nik Turner, commented:
“We know that clean and safe environments have a huge impact on the health and happiness of local people. People who take part in walks will have first-hand experience of how litter can blight the enjoyment and benefits of outdoor exercise. By completing a litter survey and sharing the results, good or bad, you will be helping us to develop our understanding of the issue and impact our future campaigns.”
