Bank Holiday Extreme Litter Pick

Once again the Clapham based Mountain and cave rescue organization carried out the extreme litter pick around the waterfalls walk in Ingleton. 10 members attended the event that started off in the rain on the 2nd May, and finished around 5pm with a Tombola stall in the car park.

The CRO trailer was there showing films and telling folk about the work of the team. The day was partly interrupted by a call to a rescue at Malham, but still raised some money from the generous walkers donating their cash to the CRO funds.

Eight black bags of rubbish were collected by abseiling down and filling bags with discarded cups, bottles, drinks cans and food wrappers. It never ceases to amaze us that people come to see the beauty, then throw their rubbish away.

The afternoon was sunny, but the car park was not as full as in previous years. We are always grateful to the Waterfalls walk for their generous donation to the CRO funds, for the litter pick.
