Community clean up set for South Ockendon

VOLUNTEERS and residents of South Ockendon are being asked to take part in a ‘Community Clean Up’ day on the Foxglove Estate on Friday 31st October from 10am to 2pm.

The clean-up has been organised by ngage to support the UK’s biggest annual volunteering event which has been expanded to take up all of October in 2013.

Laura Hudson, Volunteer Coordinator “This is a great opportunity for people to get involved and to encourage family, friends and neighbours to get involved too. People will have a great time and can make new friends whilst ‘making a difference’. It would be great to see residents from the Foxglove Estate there and they will be joining tens of thousands of people also giving their time in the UK’s biggest month of voluntary action”.

People can create their own ‘make a difference’ project or just do something that will help their local area such as taking part in a consultation, volunteering, joining a local community group or just helping their neighbours.

To find out more about the day or to volunteer, contact Laura on 01375 389853 or e-mail volunteer@ngagethurrock.org.uk. Visit the ngage website for more information on www.ngagethurrock.org.uk.
