Litter Free Leeds is turning Leeds purple this weekend, in their event Leeds Go Purple, a litter-picking event to keep the local community clean.

Starting today (Friday, 10 June) and ending on Sunday, 12 June, litter-picking groups, such as The Bramley Wombles, are making an effort to keep our city beautiful.

Volunteers and anyone who would like to join in on the group initiative, are able to contact Litter Free Leeds to receive the iconic purple bags which enable free-pickup by the council when left besides a council bin.

The Bramley Wombles are joining in on Saturday, 11 June starting their trail at Broadlea Community Centre at 10am, all are welcome.

The event carry’s on from last year’s successful pick in July. Their most recent clean-up took place on 26 March, rallying up 11 local groups, who collected a total of 300 bags. 

Litter Free Leeds organises a number of litter-picking events around the city, including another upcoming litter pick on 29 June at New Wortley Community Centre.
