A local 5-year old, real name George, living in Duxford created his own costume on Superhero Day at school, calling himself Trash Can Stan.
Since then he has been going for walks around Duxford village collecting litter. Along with his parents, he arranged a Saturday litter pick which a few villagers also joined and has another planned for 23 March.
Inspired by George’s efforts and wishing to do more to look after the local area and protect wildlife an SMT GB employee based in Duxford, Helena Urquart-Woodward has recruited a team of litter picking volunteers who will head out at lunchtimes to collect rubbish in and around the village.
Trash Can Stan was invited to SMT HQ in Duxford to officially kick off activities. He met his new team of sidekicks and had a look round some of the Volvo machines before being presented with a new mode of transport to assist with his litter picking efforts, a Volvo pedal hauler.
Amy Metcalfe, Marketing Director comments; “We’ve been really impressed by George’s efforts in Duxford and wanted to thank him for the inspiration he has brought to our business. His initiative will hopefully lead to a cleaner environment for both people and wildlife in and around the village.”
