    Weʼve raised £1,182 to help fund legal action to force public bodies acrossto clean up our streets - £1 direct or £2 via JustGiving (min is £2 not the £10 shown )

    United Kingdom
    Funded on Thursday, 31st May 2018

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Fed up with dirty and littered streets? So are we. In Aberdeenshire Litter Initiative - ALi, we have decided to take government ministers and councils to court and are asking the public to support the cost of legal action by crowd funding. We want the courts to enforce the standards that councils and other public bodies are required to uphold by law. Please join us in our fight by making a small donation of £1 - and PLS TELL US WHERE YOU ARE FROM.

    Campaigns, complaints and years of volunteer litter picking have failed to stop the decline in the cleanliness of our streets and open spaces. Councils etc. may ignore the law and the people but they cannot ignore the courts.

    Unclean streets impact adversely on physical and mental health; community wellbeing; low level crime; business investment; tourism and so much more. We will use the laws and cleanliness standards that the politicians made to force them to clean up our communities.

    We have already started by appointing a legal team and would like £1 from the many thousands of people who care about the state of the environment of the UK and want to change it.

    The minimum donation through Just Giving is £2 (it shows £10 but we would be delighted to receive £2) Alternatively, we would be pleased to get donations from individuals direct to our bank account - Bank of Scotland.

Our target is to raise £5000 Mony a mickle maks a muckle.

    Cheques should be sent to: Honorary Treasurer, Aberdeenshire Environmental Forum, Windyfold Croft, Keithhall, Inverurie AB51 0LX

    OUR PROMISE: We are a constituted community based, voluntary organisation with 28 years of annual reporting of our finances and bank accounts. The money donated will be used only to promote the aims of this campaign. When our efforts are concluded any residual money will be donated to organisations across the UK having similar objectives.

      You have my support. The state of our streets and countryside is an embarrassment. We must change attitudes and enforce our laws.

      The council is the moral authority on this.They need to be proactive in terms of picking up litter but also in work to prevent people littering. Doing the same as what they always did is not an excuse

      Keep up the good work!

    Volunteer litter pickers in ALi are frustrated by lack of cleanliness of our public open spaces and being ignored by those who have a legal duty to keep them clean. We intend to use the law to make them do it. We need thousands of very small donations (justgiving min is £2)
