Success at the first Big Barratt Cleanup with over 500 bags of rubbish collected

The Barratt Foundation in partnership with CleanupUK launched the first Big Barratt Clean Up this Spring. Teams of Barratt employees across the country filled more than 500 bags of litter – equivalent to 2.7 tonnes.

Over 430 employees, from all of Barratt Developments divisions, volunteered their time to litter pick over a two week period, helping to create greener and cleaner spaces for local communities.

Tina Bains, Company Secretary and Barratt Foundation Trustee, commented: “It has been fantastic to see how Barratt employees across the business have engaged in the Big Barratt Cleanup this Spring. Together, we collected over 500 bags of rubbish in our local areas which will have a positive impact on the environment and where Barratt builds. A huge thank you to everyone who got involved.”

George Monck, CleanupUK Chief Executive, said: “Barratt Developments’ employees have made a significant impact, creating cleaner, safer, and healthier spaces in their local communities across the UK, from Aberdeen to Exeter – we could not be more delighted.

“We are very proud of the partnership we have with The Barratt Foundation. It has been transformational and has enabled us to expand our CleanupUK Community Partners initiative by setting up Community Cleanup Hubs in some of the most disadvantaged wards across the UK. Together, we are making a tangible difference in communities nationwide.”
