Funding boost for litter project
Kells Primary has been handed funding to help tackle litter.
The New Galloway school is one of 34 across the country to share in more than £6,000 as part of the Wrigley Litter Less campaign which aims to help youngsters tackle rising litter levels. The school will receive £200 towards its efforts. Education development officer at Keep Scotland Beautiful, Michelle Gillan, said: “Since its launch in 2013, the Wrigley Litter Less campaign has worked with almost 170 schools and nurseries Scotland-wide to engage young people and activate them to take action and help address our rising litter levels.
“It is fantastic to see such significant levels of enthusiasm and commitment from the participants. The campaign is clearly helping to create Scotland’s future environmental ambassadors.”
Litter Less is an annual campaign organised in Scotland by environmental charity Keep Scotland Beautiful on behalf of the Foundation of Environmental Education (FEE) and sponsored by the Wrigley Foundation.
Litter Less activities will run throughout the whole year and are being delivered as part of eco-schools programmes in 12 countries worldwide, including Scotland.
