We’re counting down to our biggest-ever tidy-up…..just four weeks to go now until our month of action!
If you haven’t already registered, sign up and join the thousands of people up and down the country in our biggest-ever litter pick!
On sign-up, you’ll be able to order your very own Big Tidy Up Kit for free, with tabards, bags, posters, Wombles stickers and all the information you need to organise your tidy up.
Uncle Bulgaria, Orinoco, Wellington and rest of The Wombles are supporting us throughout October and are preparing themselves for a busy month! They’ll be out and about at a number of locations around the country helping tidy up. We’ll be releasing details of these locations very shortly!
We’re also delighted that Waitrose will be helping us throughout October. Selected stores across the country will be offering support to Big Tidy Up groups. To find out if a store near you is taking part, please register your tidy-up event and we’ll confirm how Waitrosecan support you.
Since 2008, The Big Tidy Up has helped to encourage more than half a million people in more than 25,000 groups to collect nearly 120,000 bags of rubbish.
Working together, our aim is to get thousands more people ‘wombling free’, cleaning up their communities and understanding that small actions can be the start of big changes.
