Jamie interviewed on Capital North Oxfordshire for setting up voluntary litter picking groups in Bicester and Banbury
Bicester local hero winner Jamie, who we support, is excited to share that he will have an interview broadcast on Capital North Oxfordshire tomorrow, Saturday 23rd January between 6am – 12noon about his volunteer litter picking groups, and would love for as many people to stay tuned to hear his message.
Below, Jamie speaks about why he set up the voluntary litter picking groups, and how you can join in:
“Hi, I’m Jamie and I am supported by Autism at Kingwood – I am autistic and set up litter picking voluntary groups in Bicester and Banbury to encourage other people to bin their litter responsibly. This matters to me so everyone can enjoy the environment around them equally. I feel strongly that during the pandemic that litter picking is a great way to stay connected with other people and share common goals for the same project – taking care of the environment, parks, country parks and local green spaces. I hope this action will set a good example for the next generation to follow as well as helping people’s mental health by getting outside and connecting them with nature. This is a great way to help the local councils with their mission to collect rubbish and keep local areas tidy so we can all enjoy them – this could also help to prevent many more viruses from spreading. If you want to get involved go to Bicester Litter Pickers or Banbury Litter Pickers on Facebook. You can also find us on Instagram.”
This is a really worthwhile initiative, and we whole heartedly support Jamie in his enterprise. We also want to offer our congratulations to Jamie for being recognised as a local hero!
