Helping Hand Environmental support 50th Clean Up Hero

Helping Hand Environmental have supported 50 Clean Up Scotland Heroes.

Keep Scotland Beautiful have been delighted to have Helping Hand Environmental support the Hero of the Month award. They kindly donate all the kits given out to litter picking heroes across Scotland.

Since 2013, each month we have celebrated an individual or group who have gone above and beyond with their litter picking efforts. Helping Hand Environmental have supported the Hero of the Month award since 2014.

In April we celebrated our 50th Hero in partnership with them, read the full story here. Altogether we have celebrated heroes in 25 local authorities across Scotland.

Lindsay Richmond, the Community Manager from Helping Hand Environmental commented: “The Helping Hand Company have been privileged to sponsor and support the Hero of the Month award for the last four years and in that time we have helped to reward and recognise over 50 Scottish heroes who have all given up their time to help Keep Scotland Beautiful. This initiative; part of the Clean Up Scotland campaign is a wonderful way to say thank you and nominate individuals of any age – so they get the recognition they deserve as Litter Heroes ”

This year Keep Scotland Beautiful are supporting the Scotland’s Year of Young People by making all our Hero of the Months aged 11-26. Do you have a young hero in mind that we could celebrate? Download our nomination form and email it in to
