On Wednesday 20th November, pupils in years 12 to 14 took part in a sponsored litter pick in Cherryvale Playing Fields and the surrounding area. The WCB Young Enterprise team and Eco Club combined to organise this event, in order to give back to the local community and raise awareness of issues such as plastic waste.

Despite the weather conditions, pupils collected over 5kg of litter. Thanks to Belfast City Council for providing the litter picking equipment. The pupils raised over £180 through sponsorships, this money will be used by the Young Enterprise team ‘Copo’ to fund their company.
