Volunteering at The Community Service (Litter Pick Day)

Hi!
It’s my first time doing a community service collecting litter on the streets of Lincoln as a volunteer for the Student’s Union.
Together with 7 other volunteers, we headed to Monks Road, the proposed road for the day but as we going to our destination,the amount of rubbish we have already cleared especially cigarette butts was apparent.

Two designated volunteers were tasked to pick the cigarette butts for an NGO organization that lobbies for a smoke free Lincoln City.
The great feeling about doing this is appreciation that I received from the public that thanked us for our work.

Going to Monks Road for the first time, it came as a suprise to me that there is such a beautiful park over there and definitely a great place to go for a run!

The litter pick day ended at 1pm with a little group photo and the pictures of the rubbish, cigarette butts and cigarette boxes that were collected. Overall it’s a great experience for me,having not done any litter pick session since primary school!
Crazy week ahead! See ya!
