Volunteers ask for donations to help clean up our community!
ZEST, a new community action group for the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness are asking for help from local residents and businesses to help purchase a van so they can transport their cleaning equipment.
The equipment which includes a pedestrian road sweeper, hot pressure washer, water tanks and other general cleaning equipment will be used throughout the Borough.
The group aims to target littering, graffiti, weeds, fly-tipping and cleanliness of the Borough in general.
A spokesperson for ZEST said: " We are thrilled to have received fabulous support to buy litter picking equipment and cleaning equipment for our new ZEST Community Action Group. We are planning to get out and about in your area and need your assistance to do so. We need transport to get this equipment to your area, and throughout the Borough of Barrow-in-Furness .
"We already have dates booked for local cleaning events, but finding places to park in our town centre can be very restrictive, and the length of our personal vehicle plus a trailer with ramp would not be suitable, so we are looking for the support of our wonderful local community, residents and businesses to help us buy a long wheel base van.
"The new van will enable our action group to be fully equipped when organising community litter picking events, beach cleans and deep cleaning streets. We even plan to help with weed control, graffiti removal and much more. We want to be the one stop solution to your community concerns and have lots of other exciting plans in the pipeline, which we are sure you will want to get involved with.
"A long wheel base van will be large enough for us to put our road sweeper, pressure washer, water tank and other cleaning equipment in the back, enabling us to be even more proactive in the community.
"If you can spare a few pounds please donate, this service is beneficial to everyone that lives and works in the Furness area and guarantees we can get out into the community and into your area to help make a cleaner, greener and safer Furness."
