Asda Clydebank staff hosted litter picks in the community with the help of primary school pupils. 

These clean-ups were organised in conjunction with the supermarket's partnership with the Big Help Out initiative.

The Big Help Out is a large-scale event that brings together thousands of organisations dedicated to cleaning up their local communities.

For the clean-up, the Clydebank, Dumbarton and Maryhill Asda staff partnered with Clydemuir Primary School to address the litter issue in Dalmuir.

The school pupils and colleagues gathered five bags of litter as they made their way around the area last week. 

Maryanne Scott, Asda Clydebank community champion, said: "The pupils at Clydemuir Primary School were a fantastic help in this litter pick.

"We cleaned up around the school grounds and then took a walk through the local community, picking up litter as we went."

And not only did the students enjoy the activity, but they were all awarded a certificate for their contribution to cleanliness.

The staff also conducted a litter pick with 30 students from Braehead Primary School.

Anne-Marie O'Shea, Asda Dumbarton community champion, said: "The children from Braehead Primary School were so enthusiastic and did a great job."

She also expressed her delight at the participation of local customers who responded to the Big Help Out advertisement in stores and contributed to the clean-up.

They have also agreed on more litter picks in the future, including over the summer, to continue benefiting local areas.
