Redrow Homes Helps Tidy Up The Taff
As the main sponsor of the Great Taff Tidy Redrow Homes also worked closely with Keep Wales Tidy to organise the event, which took place from the 17th to the 19th of February and saw volunteers from local businesses, clubs and community groups come together to give up their time for the cause.
In total the volunteers cleared almost 400 bags of litter from the Taff, its banks and the surrounding woodland, as well as some larger and more unusual items including shopping trollies, bikes, an anchor and even the remains of a car.
Several members of the Redrow Homes South Wales management team were on hand over the weekend with Sales Director Beverley Wookey and Area Sales Managers Kate Lacey and Sian Smith all doing their part to help clean up the iconic river.
Beverley Wookey said: “At Redrow Homes we’re passionate about protecting the environment. Our South Wales office has been involved in several fundraising initiatives in support of Keep Wales Tidy and their incredibly important work, so when we heard about the Great Taff Tidy we decided we had to get involved.
“The River Taff is an integral part of the landscape of South Wales and is vital to wildlife and recreational activities in the area, so making sure the river stays clean and safe for everyone who uses it is incredibly important. The event was a fantastic success and we all had a lot of fun taking part.”
Lesley Jones, Chief Executive for Keep Wales Tidy said: “It was fantastic to see so many people from across Cardiff getting involved in The Great Taff Tidy. It’s vital that we all do our bit to care for our local environment and this weekend has been a perfect example of what local communities can achieve when they work together.
“We would like to thank Redrow Homes for their support – The Great Taff Tidy 2017 would not have been possible without them.”
