Keep it local. Keep it beautiful!
How to win a 100 euro ShopLK voucher.
We are running a campaign called ‘Keep it local. Keep it beautiful’, in which we encourage people to pick up a few items of litter while out enjoying your local area. Whether you pick up a couple of cans or do a full scale neighbourhood litter pick, it all makes a big difference. Just be sure to keep to social distancing guidelines (see below for further details).
As an added incentive, we are offering two 100 EURO ShopLK vouchers (sponsored by Magees Pharmacy).
The first category is ‘Best Clean Up’, which will include photographs of areas which have been improved thanks to your litter picking efforts. If you can include ‘Before’ and ‘After’ photos, that would be ideal, but don’t worry if you don’t have a ‘Before’ picture, just tell us about your clean up and you’ll be entered in this category. See below for an example, surely you can do better than this!
The second category is for the photo which best showcases the beauty of your local area. Could be a view, could be animals (domestic, farm or wildlife), could be the people you love, could be a building or a piece of outdoor artwork – the choice is yours!
Please note that if you already entered before the introduction of separate categories, there is no need to enter again, as your photos are already entered in the appropriate category.
Once you have taken your photo(s), just post it on our Facebook page or email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a short description of the photo(s), your name and contact phone number in the email. If you prefer to post your photo(s) then please send to Gerard McCormick, Magees Pharmacy, 27 Upper Main Street, Letterkenny, Co Donegal, F92 E30F also providing a short description of each photo, your name and contact phone number. The competition closes at 12 midnight on July 5th.
Keeping your area beautiful!
If you would like to make a contribution to keeping your area beautiful, you can get grabbers, bags and gloves by contacting Gerard or Eileen in Magees Pharmacy on (074) 9121409. Or you can just pick up a few items as you spot them and place them in your own bin. Please be sure to follow the government guidelines below.
As of phase 2 of the Government’s roadmap to easing the COVID-19 restrictions, the official advice from the National Spring Clean campaign is as follows:-
• Only small groups to take part (up to 15 people, provided all activity is outdoors)
• Strict 2m social distance maintained
• Stay within your allowable distance
• Hand sanitising essential before and after the clean-up
• Use your own gloves, and don’t share your litter picker if you’re using one
• Make sure gloves/ litter pickers are clean before/ after clean up
• Do not collect any discarded PPE or tissue paper
