The Mayor

This year's Capital Clean-up will continue to support London's community groups and small businesses to spruce up their neighbourhoods, with events taking place between May and August 2014. This year's campaign, in partnership with McDonald's, is expected to support around 200 events and aims to attract 2,500 volunteers.

Applications for grants and clean-up kits close on 24 March. Applications will be assessed in April and successful applicants contacted. Information about this summer's events will be put on the Capital Clean-up webpages once grants are agreed.
