Big Spring Clean 2016

Date Posted: 26/04/2016 | Posted In: Latest news

QE students wanted to do their bit for the environment and, with summer on the way, decided to tidy up Stanhope Park by taking part in a litter pick organised by Darlington Borough Council.

The Park is used daily by students and they want to help in keeping it a place that all members of the community can enjoy. The College’s Student Association Executive and students involved in Project Borneo willingly volunteered to be a part of “Litter Free Durham’s BIG Spring Clean 2016.”

Armed with litter picking equipment, students and members of staff filled up bags with all manner of rubbish from all sorts of places, including in tree branches and under bushes.

The litter pick was well supported with over 30 students volunteering.

Beccy Stannard, Student Services Coordinator, said:

‘It was great to see so many students getting involved, helping out in the community. QE and the Borough Council wish to thank everyone who came along and helped to make our ‘Big Spring Clean’ such a great success. It’s so positive to see that so many young people really do care about their environment.’
