Neighbourhood Clean Ups 2015

At the beginning of this year, IDC in 2015 are continuing to work alongside Greening Wingrove to clear the litter of our streets.

In the summer, IDC are part of the national Neighbourhood Clean Up campaign with teams up and down the country taking part in this fantastic communal initiative.

September was a monumental month for our Neighbourhood Clean Up project – with approximately 20+ volunteers turning up in force to clear up the West Road and Shipley Avenue area!  It was a fantastic day, with Muslims and Non-Muslims, kids and a range of volunteers from varying ethnicities uniting for one cause!

The IDC team came out in force this month with 5 brothers and 5 sisters participating in the revival of the Neighbourhood Clean Up.  It was a great day that inspired many others to participate in future ones.

Neighbourhood Clean-up 2013

The Neighbourhood Clean up (28th November 2013) aimed to show the importance of coming together as a community and keeping the streets clean. Our beloved Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “…and removing harmful things from the pathways is charity.” (Bukhari)

IDC worked in conjunction with Time Exchange to clean around Arthurs Hill area.

Feedback from the community:

“The IDC team were praised & encouraged by local residents. Non IDC members were informed of the reason for this initiative & conveyed Islam to them which was
received well.”

“It’s been excellent today, really good turn out so we’ve had lots of volunteers that have helped, lots of residents have come out & commented of what a good jobs being done. Thank you very much, it’s been a pleasure.”

Theresa Ball, Time Exchange
