Streethouse School has teamed up with WDH to take part in the Great British Spring Clean, a campaign created to clean up local areas and reduce litter within the Wakefield district.
Twenty-nine children, aged between 7 and 9 years old, carried out a litter pick in their local parks and streets. They collected 15 bags of rubbish all together, which is a fantastic effort from everyone involved.
WDH’s Impact Team collected the rubbish and took it to the local waste recycling centre.
WDH has supported the Great British Spring Clean with a number of clean up events across the district.

Tom Lawton, WDH’s Tenant Involvement Officer, said: “The children were wonderful and so enthusiastic about tidying up their area. Their effort was amazing and they were shocked to see the impact littering has on where they live.”
