Grand Welsh Pick Challenge Progress
Why a Grand Welsh Pick?
The throwaway culture and lack of wild habitats for animals across the world have never been so serious as it is now! The plastic issues, especially with single use plastics, is one of the biggest environmental issues the modern world faces.
As landfills are getting increasingly full the overspill of plastic is seen everywhere in the natural world. We must act now!
So, one of the challenges we have set for a Grand Week in Wales 2022 is to collect 1000 bags of litter #GrandWelshPick
What is the Grand Welsh Pick challenge?
We are looking for your help to collect bags of litter across Wales and do your part in cleaning up the global mess. Bags must be bin bag size or larger.
We are encouraging children, groups, businesses, families, and individuals to be sponsored for your litter/plastic clean-up to raise money for the charities involved with A Grand Week in Wales.
Other affiliated organisations include:
How can you get involved?
We also encourage you to take photos of yourself completing your litter pick which we will then share on our social media pages and website.
All you need to do now is set yourself a target and get as many people involved as possible. You could also use this as an opportunity to fundraise for Nanny Biscuit or a local charity of your choice.
All monies raised for A Grand Week in Wales are distributed in the following way;
20% to Nanny Biscuit to combat food poverty, isolation and loneliness, with the remainder evenly distributed between our brilliant national partner organisations;
- Green Paw Project – Tree planting and land regeneration
- CAFgas CIC – Free boiler repairs for people living in fuel poverty
- Fare Share – Feeding the homeless
- Marie Curie – Terminal illness & bereavement
- Adferiad Recovery – Addiction and mental health
- YAB Wrexham – Community hub supporting vulnerable members
- Blood Bikes Wales – Transportation of blood and breast milk
