Anonymous donor was a former volunteer before relocating
The Chiswick Litter Pick Team
The Chiswick Litter Pick Team has received a boost after receiving a sizeable donation from an anonymous donor.
The support was given by a former resident who used to be a regular volunteer with his son before he moved away from London. After reading that the initiative had been going from strength since its inception back in the winter of 2018.
Cllr Ron Mushiso, who helps organise the group said, ‘We are very thankful for the donation which I am sure will be put to good use as we seek to gain more volunteers so that we can play a role in the stewardship of our local environment.’
The donation will allow the group to flourish even more, with plans to purchase customised high vis-jackets, introduce more child friendly litter picking equipment and the funds to start new projects.
On the fourth Sunday of each a month around 2:30pm you will come across the local volunteers carrying bin bags and litter pickers around Chiswick High Road and Turnham Green. They will be out again this Sunday (24 April) and at the same time each month for the foreseeable future given that they are now in receipt of generous donation from former resident and volunteer.
Joining in the spirit of keeping our neighbourhoods clean, other groups have started to form with the help of Cllr Mushiso. This includes Sipsmith Distillery recently formed their own Litter Pick group which meets in-house on the 4th Friday of each to clear the roads around the Hogarth Roundabout and Chiswick Lane.
The next organised Litter Pick is this Sunday 24 April.
Meet at 2.30pm at Christ Church Turnham Green W4 5DT.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
