A Quick Post


Hiya!

It has been a long time since I’ve last posted anyway hope everyone is ok, I’ve been so busy with Litter Watch And also doing Hospital Radio 

I’ve been Captain Recyco and The Compost Kid at different locations one was West Bromwich & other one in Wednesbury town centre & have  also gone to different schools to do an assembly many times it’s great fun.

And at the Hospital Radio I’ve been really busy as I’m now the Music Librarian sorting music and getting new songs for the station it’s great doing different roles

I have volunteered for Sandwell Hospital Radio for 7  years now I started in 2011 and I have volunteered at  Litter Watch for 3 or 4 years now

I still do both and I have found that volunteering is great fun and it good to add to your CV also get to meet new people at the same time.

Hope you enjoy reading my posts 🙂

From showcasing the different volunteering roles on offer, taster sessions and team challenges with new partners, to volunteer recruitment events, awards ceremonies and launching new volunteering campaigns, events take place throughout the country.

Don’t Be Bitter Pick Up Your Litter!!


When you walk around you see litter, Litter. Trash in a public place. Paper, cans, and bottles that belong in a landfill or recycling bin. I hate litter anywhere and everywhere. And I’m a Litter Watch Volunteer as you will read in this post here

We go around the Sandwell area and do litter picking it’s great fun looking after the environment! but the amount of litter you see around makes you sad 😦 and you think would you do this at home? No don’t think so well why do it in the street!!
