2017 1 Ton sponsored litter pick for Nanna's Animal Shelter Irthlingborough.
Nights colleagues at Asda in Kettering have taken up the challenge to collect a massive 1000KG or 1 Metric Ton of litter and flytipped refuse from the local area. After the success of the 2015 1 Ton pick, which raised £625 for BBC Children In Need and Kettering Angling Association, we have already had hundreds of pounds pledged over the years by our amazingly generous colleagues at the Northfield Avenue store. Our past campaigns have collected 5000KG of dumped litter from around Kettering and the green areas of Northamptonshire.
We as a country spend 1 Billion pounds needlessly picking up rubbish, that shouldn't have been dropped in the first place. It damages wildlife, leaching hormones in to the environment which affects the ability of many species to breed. The Billion pounds that is thrown away(litterally,ha), could be spent on hospitals, education, policing or our armed forces. We are going to try to reverse just a small part of this huge problem, by picking up the local rubbish dropped by unthinking litterbugs.
If you want to actually do something about the place which we and our future generations will call home, then please give anything you can afford, so that we can both clean up Kettering and also contribute to the wildlife of our great county.

This is further sponsorship money from Asda in Kettering, including Ruthy, Julia, Val, Sean Westrope and others. I've still got a few weeks to hit the target, so roughly 250KG to go. Great work lad.

Good luck raising the funds for the shelter and I'm pleased to see Kettering cleaned up at the same time, the amount of litter on our streets is disheartening - good job!
