Litter picking

What is it?

  • Raise money by picking up litter in exchange for a suggested donation from people you know.

What you’ll need

  • A date or dates to do the litter pick
  • Friends to help you out
  • Bin bags to put all the litter you collect into
  • Plastic or rubber gloves to wear to keep your hands clean
  • Permission from your youth leader or teacher
  • A safe, sealed or lockable place to keep the money you raise
  • Someone who can write a cheque for the amount you raise

Top tips

  • Don’t set the suggested donation too high - you want as many people as possible to join in.

All about the money

  • Once the event is over and you’ve collected all the money, post us a cheque (made payable to the British Red Cross) for the amount you raised, along with a copy of the banking form from the module five facilitator's notes. Our address details are also on the same page as the form.
  • If you have any questions about sending us money or want to ask for other advice, please contact our fundraising team on 0844 412 2728 or
