Do Your Bit: This March You Can Volunteer To Clean Up The River Thames

With Thames21 you can help to clean up London’s beloved river by embarking on one of their clean-up operations. Volunteers will be heading to two of the river’s litter hotspots, Newcastle Draw Dock on the Isle of Dogs (12 March), and Queen Caroline Draw Dock, Hammersmith Bridge (19 March) to tidy up the banks, as well as conducting a count to try and find where all the rubbish is coming from, which is the most common form of rubbish and attempting to determine what would be the best way to stop rubbish getting there in the first place. Rubbish, rubbish and more rubbish.

All the equipment and training is provided and there’s no need to book! Simple! Just turn up, do something productive for your local community and see the Thames like you’ve never seen it before: clean and from a completely new perspective!
