7. Whilst your children streamline their bookshelves, see if you can do the same to your wardrobe. Local charities supporting the homeless are in need of winter clothes at this time of year – particularly coats, jumpers, shoes and thick socks.
8. Join Paddington’s first ever Great British Spring Clean on Friday 2 March. Give up an hour of your time and travel along the water by canoe, collecting rubbish as you paddle. You’ll be one of over 150 volunteers along the tow path and on boats.
9. But don’t wait until the Spring Clean to start showing Paddington you care. As you walk to work, the station or to grab your lunch, be a litter hero and pick up any rubbish you see.
10. Sign up to receive the Paddington Community Programme newsletter and get a monthly update of all the amazing ways you could make a difference – whether supporting one off events, through skilled volunteering or by making donations.
