Get involved in the Capital Clean-Up campaign this summer

Community groups, charities, schools and local businesses have applied for grants and clean-up kits to spruce up their neighbourhoods' as part of the Capital Clean-Up summer campaign. Between May – August 2014 neglected green spaces will be transformed into attractive community gardens, littered ‘grot spots’ and waterways will be cleared of accumulated waste and grey, graffiti covered walls will be enhanced with vibrant murals all achieved by volunteers involved in our summer campaign.  

If you are interested in getting involved in our summer campaign why not go the Capital Clean-Up Project Dirt cluster where you can find out more information about projects and events going on in your part of London.
