Thanks for Cleaning up Elwood Village today

The sun shone for our seven trusty volunteers who cleaned up around Ormond Road shops today. It was a great pleasure to join forces and to welcome Kathy who is looking to start a LOS chapter in Cheltenham.

We collected a total of 28 kg of litter - that's a large total for a small group. This included 725 cigarette butts, 30 drink containers (bottles & cans) and lots of small plastic fragments. 

We raised $175 in water credits for schools and individuals seeking to install water tanks or rain gardens in Elster Creek and Werribee River catchments. We also sold a few Elwood Cups ( re-useables) and received some donations. All good things.
