JCI is taking action against illegal dumping and careless behaviour towards the environment by supporting a number of “clean up” projects throughout the world between 24 March and 25 September 2012. These projects are about doing something together to benefit the environment.
As part of this campaign, JCI Cambridge will be taking part in two river clean-up projects in 2012 – cleaning the River Cam and the River Sturmer.
The first part is the “Cambridge Spring Clean” organised by the Cleaner Cambridge Campaign. Taking place on Saturday April 14th 2012 10am – 12.30pm the aim is to clear the River Cam and adjacent open spaces of all surface litter from Fen Causeway to Fen Ditton.
Teams will meet at one of three locations:
Stourbridge Common from Riverside
The Fort St George (where coffee before and a BBQ afterwards are free for all!)
The bridge outside The Mill Pub and Scudamores
The second part is our own event, cleaning up the river near Sturmer on Saturday 21st July.
We are encouraging our membership to help us to clean these beautiful rivers, which we hope will offer a good chance to socialise whilst doing something good for the community. We will be finishing each day in true JCI Cambridge style… with a drink or two!
Remember – all volunteer hours can be logged as part of JCI ACE, where the efforts of JCI members will be recognised through an awards scheme – please check out our blog post for more information.
