Litter-picking with Lorraine
Litter-picking in east London might not be as glamorous as starring on Emmerdale or appearing in I’m A Celebrity, but that didn’t stop Lorraine Chase from rolling up her sleeves to help a local CleanupUK group to tidy their area recently.
Lorraine donned her hi-viz jacket and helped to remove rubbish and litter from the streets of Stepney with local residents.
Lorraine said: “Great feeling getting all that rubbish off the streets. But please all stop dropping it and bin it !”
Polly Martin, of Aston Street, E14 who runs the Ocean Litter Pickers group said: “This group was started in order to help tidy up our estate, it has now become a social event that locals can all take part in and enjoy.
“I’m delighted that Lorraine was able to see the impact CleanupUK can have on our community.”
Since August this group of Stepney residents have been meeting weekly to clean up the corners of Stepney, filling bags with bottles, cans, sweet wrappers and crisp packets.

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall joined us in Winsor Park, Newham, East London, on 5th May 2011 to launch CleanupUK’s “Beautiful Boroughs” project and to announce that she has agreed to take on the role of President of the charity.
