Gateway, Asda and Thurrock Council join forces to fight litter in Tilbury

STUDENTS from The Gateway Academy joined staff from Asda in Tilbury as the supermarket swept into action for its “Big Litter Pick”.

The team collected 25 bags of rubbish during the clean-up around the supermarket car park last Wednesday (September 12th).

Asda Community Life Champion Sam Stevens said: “Our businesses work hard to be a part of the communities they are in. It was great to work with local students and the community to make a small difference to Tilbury.”

Gateway Academy Extended Provision Manager Lorraine Fugl, said: “Our students and staff are proud of our area and we were delighted to be asked to take part in this litter pick. Respect for our environment is key to keeping the area clean and tidy and taking part in this campaign is a useful lesson in how we can all play our part in the community.”

The litter pick was supported by Tilbury Riverside Project and Thurrock Council which provided equipment and rubbish collection.
