Members of St Michael and All Angels junior choir, siblings Viviene and Jansen Lim are getting ready for a sponsored litter pick on May 23.
They will be raising money for international relief and development charity Christian Aid in its 75th anniversary year.
Teams from Wallington and South Beddington churches and youth groups will join them to help clean up Beddington Park, Mellows Park, woodlands south of Roundshaw Common and public areas around local churches.
“Climate justice and the environment are a big part of Christian Aid’s work in places of need across the world, and it’s a local issue too, so what better way to raise awareness, show support and make a difference?” said organiser Immo Hüneke.
Other events this month include an online quiz, prize bingo and local collections during Christian Aid Week (May 10 to 16), with a stall at Wallington Farmers’ Market on May 8 to kick things off.
And the organisers are still encouraging others to join in and volunteer.
