A south Cumbrian personal care giant has played a key part in a project to keep its local community clean.

Kimberly-Clark, which employs 380 people at its mill in Barrow, was a key sponsor of this year’s Big Clean campaign.

The Big Clean is one of the biggest community projects to take place in and around Barrow and aims to promote civic pride by giving community groups the tools to keep their environment clean and safe.

During the campaign, which ran from March through to October, staff from Kimberly Clark recruited the help of three local primary schools – St Pius school, Yarlside Academy and Barrow Island school - in a bid to clean up their streets and get one step closer to a litter free community.

Kimberly-Clark Mill manager Crichton Waddell said: “We have a proud team and want to ensure that we are playing our part in support of our community.

"The Big Clean is a great initiative that engages a wide range of community members in stepping up and helping improve our environment, our community and helping ourselves. This initiative perfectly aligns with some of our company values that we aim to promote - being authentic, caring, accountable and innovative.”
