  • THANKS! To all CUTW 2013 Volunteers

    Letter of thanks to all participants in 2013 Clean up the World

    As organisers of Clean up the World locally we would like to thank the community for once again rising up to the challenge of cleaning up Gibraltar! A strong cross section of our community got behind the hands on action sending a powerful message that many care and want to protect this great environment we live in. This public, widespread action also serves to raise awareness of the serious littering issues we continue to have and the need to tackle these together.
    It is impossible to thank everyone personally but this public letter is intended to offer an acknowledgement of the efforts made by those involved, especially to team leaders and school representatives.
