Get your detachment involved in volunteering for your community this Spring - there are lots of ways you could help freshen up local buildings and open spaces near you…
Go one step further and invite local businesses and organisations to sponsor your Spring Clean event to help raise funds for your detachment or for a local charity.
Here are some ideas on how to help your community do a thorough Spring Clean:
- Help the elderly clean up their gardens ready for summer
- Organise a sponsored car wash
- Arrange a local “Bag It Up” campaign, collect and deliver clothes to local charity shops
- Pick up litter in your local park
- Freshen up a local building with a new coat of paint
- Tidy up the local war memorial
- Set up a sponsored window cleaning event
The above are just a few suggestions, if you can think of some more we would love to hear about them. The more innovative and fun the better. Let us know how you are getting involved in your community by tweeting us @ArmyCadetsUK or posting on the ACF Facebook page.
Remember: Volunteering in your community helps you achieve a Duke of Edinburgh’s award and counts towards your star levels.
