Funding goes a long way at Tavistock community clean up

Partnership work with Mount Kelly Boarding and Day School and the Greenlands Tenant and Residents' Association has meant this Tavistock neighbourhood has never looked better.
Mount Kelly student volunteers

We provided funding of £100 to Mount Kelly to buy gloves, shovels and trowels. These tools were used by students to tidy the nearby Greenlands neighbourhood.

Alison Knight, LiveWest Community Connector said: “I want to thank Joe Moorat, Chair of the Greenlands Tenants and Residents’ Association for his help in setting it up. This has been  a fantastic partnership between the us and Mount Kelly. We provided £100 worth of funding to the school to help towards the cost of new gardening gloves and tools. Our customers have been delighted to see students in the neighbourhood and they appreciate their work!”

Mrs Tossell, Volunteering Coordinator at Mount Kelly said: ‘’Two groups of volunteers joined forces with pupils from our Tidy Tavi group and worked alongside Buckland Abbey volunteers to carry out weeding at Greenlands. The grant from LiveWest and the Greenlands Tenants and Residents' Association has been used to buy spades, trowels and brooms. Our teacher, Mr Larkham, who takes the litter picking group, hopes that this can become a regular volunteering activity. 

Mrs Tossell added, "It has been great to be able to support our community in this way and to work with other local groups.’’

Thank you and well done to everyone who took part.
