Local anti-litter charity, Litter Angels, have won £500 from the Asda Foundation’s Green Token Giving initiative to assist with tackling litter across Sittingbourne and Sheppey.
Shoppers could vote for their chosen charity between 1st October and 30th November via the Asda Foundation’s website.
Litter Angels received £500 as the winner and two runners-up received £200 each.
Gordon Henderson MP, Chairman of Litter Angels, told SFM News: "I would like to thank everyone who voted for Litter Angels and to Asda in Sittingbourne for awarding us with our prize money. The £500 will be used to help spread our message about the negative affect litter has on our environment and to encourage children to take pride in the area in which they live and play.’
Claire Fosbeary, Asda Community Life Champion in Sittingbourne, told SFM News: "It is wonderful to see the good work that the charity is achieving in our local community. Asda are proud to support Litter Angels as it goes hand in hand with our own sustainability strategy in making our environment a safer and greener place to live.’
