AS spring is in the air and the weather is getting warmer, staff from wilko Warrington and local residents have been taking part in the Great British Spring Clean.
As the headline sponsor for the Great British Spring Clean, the home and garden retailer and residents cleaned up key areas in the town centre this past week
Wilko Warrington staff made a pledge to help clean up areas around the town, as members of the public joined them in making a real difference to the town’s social spaces. Wilko is encouraging everyone to get out and help clean up, as the Easter weekend is expected to be quite warm, the home and garden retailer is urging as many people as possible to join in for the final week.
Wilko also launched an affordable range of equipment from litter-pickers to bags, high-vis vests to hand sanitiser, so volunteers can get everything they need in store or online at wilko.com.
On cleaning areas around the town centre wilko Warrington store manager Keith Peers said “We’re huge supporters of the Great British Spring Clean and we’re thrilled that we have staff members and customers that want to make a real difference to Warrington.
“It makes a real difference to the city centre and as a high street business, we love the fact that it helps shoppers fall in love with Warrington every time they visit.”
Wilko is committed to help get 500,000 people from across the UK to pull together to clean up the nation’s streets, parks and beaches between now and the 23rd April this year, and not just the Warrington store is getting involved, every store across the country will be offering all the things needed to join in with this year’s campaign.
Speaking about the campaign, Andrew Moore, wilko CCO said; “Supporting hard-working families is really important to us, and part of that is helping make sure that they have communities they can enjoy and thrive in. We know that the environment on their doorstep matters to people, which is why we chose to support Keep Britain Tidy through our carrier bag charge donations.
“The funding doesn’t just back this incredible campaign, it also supports projects which transform green spaces and those which give schools a helping hand, educating children and young people about how they can make a difference to the environment, for example how their school can better manage waste by reducing, reusing and recycling.
Andrew continues: “We want to pitch in on a practical level, too, which is why we’ve made sure team members from all of our stores can take part in a clean-up through our funded volunteering program.”
