Read join forces with local community group to tackle neighbourhood litter

Read Construction joined together with the local Flint Litter Pickers group this week for a community litter pick.

During the event, the team collected 16 bags full of litter, along with a TV aerial, a spade, three wheel hubs, and a traffic cone.

In addition to their participation, Read Construction also donated over £600 worth of new litter-picking equipment and high-visibility vests to aid the group’s efforts.

Neil Hughes, Flint Litter Pickers, said: “I’d like to thank Read Construction and its staff for getting their hands dirty to help clean up our community. I’d also like to express our sincere thanks for their generous contribution of the litter-picking kit to the group. I’m sure it will be put to great use by volunteers of all ages and abilities. The volunteers of Flint Litter Pickers look forward to working with Read Construction in future!”

Kasia Williamson, Engagement Manager at Read Construction, added: “It was fantastic to get involved with the group and help to make a difference to the local community. Throughout the afternoon we spoke with members of the public who shared their appreciation – the Flint Litter Pickers are making a real difference to their community and it is wonderful to see the support they are given.”

“Read is passionate about supporting our local communities, and by joining in with this fantastic voluntary group and providing them with new equipment and high-vis, we hope we made a difference to the Flint community.”

The litter pick and donations came as part of Read’s commitment to adding value to the local community throughout the New Welsh Medium Primary School contract.
