Keep Britain Tidy Ambassador Visits College

Students at SJR were thrilled to be visited by Keep Britain Tidy Ambassador and Communities hero, Wayne Dixon and his dog Koda, who are halfway round their litter pick of the UK coastline.
Wayne talked to students about the problems in communities countrywide and the difference that can be made by picking litter up. He has already raised over £20,000 for MIND and the Northern Inuit Society.
You can follow Wayne’s journey on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
