Kärcher has joined forces with national independent environment charity, Keep Britain Tidy, to bring the ultimate spring clean to a seafront underpass. With the help of a team from Kärcher, the two organisations descended on Weymouth to wash, scrub and clean a local seafront underpass, giving it a good-as-new pathway under the busy Esplanade for locals to get safely across the road.
The walkway was given the treatment after ‘WeyProgress’ won a national competition, out of hundreds of entries, to win an expert clean in its local area. The competition, run by Kärcher UK and Keep Britain Tidy across their social channels, urged participants to put forward their local towns that needed some TLC to be in with a chance of winning.
Jack Sweeney, marketing director at Kärcher UK, said: “Here at Kärcher UK we have always focused on inspiring communities to come together and take pride in their local area. It was a fantastic day and showed that if you all pull together you can get great results - the area is spotless and ready for people to enjoy again."
Richard McIlwain, deputy chief executive at Keep Britain Tidy, said: “Keep Britain Tidy works really hard to make sure the people of local communities are proud of the places they work and live in. We’re delighted we could join forces with Kärcher and help the community of Weymouth give a fresh look to the underpass.”
Nigel Shearing from WeyProgress said: “It’s been really great to see members of the Weymouth community pitch in and help - the underpass is looking fantastic. We’re so thankful to Kärcher and Keep Britain Tidy for helping us make this clean possible and we hope that everyone will once again enjoy walking though the underpass on the way to the seafront.”
