Volunteers Team Up for ‘Big Tidy Up’ in Brent
Wednesday 30 May 2012

In keeping with its ongoing commitment to the local community in Brent, BAPS Charities jointly coordinated a ‘Big Tidy Up’ project with neighbouring organisations Tesco and McDonald’s to clean the roads, alleyways and green areas in the vicinity.

Several staff and senior management from both organisations joined volunteers from BAPS Charities on Wednesday 30 May as they embarked on a route from St Raphael’s Way, up to the Harrow Road-North Circular Road junction, then along Brentfield Road, before ending at BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir.

The team separated recyclable products from general waste, significantly improving the appearance in the area while also helping foster environmental awareness. The efforts and community spirit of the team were warmly applauded by the local mayor, Cllr Michael Adeyeye.

This latest initiative stands in continuation of a number of community-driven projects led by Tesco and BAPS Charities in working together with and for local communities.

The day ended with a group photograph outside the Mandir and the team enjoying a delicious vegetarian Indian meal at the Mandir in the presence of the Mayor.
