The week running up to St David’s Day has been designated Grand Week in Wales, with people encouraged to take part in a range of “feel good” community challenges including The Grand Welsh Litter Pick.

Organised by the Green Paw Project in association with Deeside-based community organisation Nanny Biscuit, The Grand Welsh Litter Pick seeks to raise funds for the Green Paw tree-planting scheme.

The target is to collect 1,000 bags of plastic through individual and (Covid-secure) group litter picks between 22 February and 1 March.

Every £2 raised will go towards planting a tree in Wales, says the Green Paw Project, thereby creating a double win of both removing litter and planting new trees to offset carbon emissions.

Brainchild of Deeside-based community organisation Nanny Biscuit, Grand Week in Wales also features other events and activities, featuring daffodils, music, Welsh cakes and random acts of kindness. Find out more on the Nanny Biscuit website.
