Clean Up Collaboration Project

Bell Group, are proud to have supported Sunderland’s Business Improvement District’s (BID) recent campaign called 100 Quick Wins.

100 Quick Wins is a collaboration project with Sunderland Business Improvement District (BID), Sunderland College and Sunderland Council, which saw up to 3000 students embark upon a three-day clean-up campaign from 18-20 October.

As part of the campaign, local organisations supported the students to carry out various tasks including painting of shutters, weeding and litter picking.

Our team provided advice on painting techniques, types of paint/brushes/rollers to use, and helped to distribute paint to separate groups. As well as being on site to help out.

100 Quick Wins saw at least 100 jobs done to spruce up the city centre. The initiative highlighted the ongoing regeneration of the city centre, building local pride and a sense of awareness about the importance of keeping the city centre looking good.

Bob Donninson, Storeman and Apprentice Mentor, Bell Group said “This is a great example of partnership in action, a variety of local organisations working together for the good of the city - it’s great to be able to give something back to our local community”.
