Together with a range of organisations from across the town centre, Barnsley FC staff recently took part in a litter pick, working together to look after our precious environment.
More than 30 individuals grouped together, assembling at our beloved Oakwell home before making a round-trip across the town centre of Barnsley, tidying streets, paths and fields along the way.
Helping to highlight Barnsley Council's 'Sustainable Barnsley' campaign, Reds staff from the front office joined staff from Barnsley Council, Barnsley Market, The Glassworks, Barnsley Museums, Berneslai Homes and Barnsley College to spend an afternoon picking up litter around the town centre.
We all believe it is time to believe in the possibilities of Barnsley, to look to the future with excitement and optimism. Our borough is a place that fosters and grows ambition, enabling everyone to be the best they can be.
We’re proud of our borough, and it’s vital that we look after our local environment by reusing our resources. Together, we can reduce pollution, minimise waste, and support people to heat and power their homes, cars and businesses with affordable, sustainable energy.
Andrew Clark - Marketing, Commercial & Business Director at Barnsley FC believes it's vital that the Club - the heartbeat of Barnsley itself - works together with the local community and organisations within it to drive positive change in the place we proudly call home.
"We are proud of our town," he explained.
"To develop, build and hopefully extend our relationship with both the council and all key town centre stakeholders is of paramount importance to Barnsley FC, as we ourselves strive towards better times.
"We back the Barnsley 2030 campaign wholeheartedly and I know the guys who joined the litter pick recently were proud to play a small part in this latest initiative, helping to drive a very important conversation.
"We, as a Club have much more to do. In unison with organisations like this, we hope to improve our own carbon footprint and the work to achieve this is already underway."
