Registration is open for the 26th annual Voar Redd Up
Published: 08 March 2013
Registration is open for the 26th annual Voar Redd Up, with the main weekend to take place on 27th & 28th April 2013.
Originally launched in 1988, Da Voar Redd Up quickly became the largest community based voluntary clear up throughout the UK, with over 20% of Shetland’s population regularly volunteering for the event. Last year 4,849 participants volunteered more than 10,000 man hours to collect over 56 tonnes of bruck from roadside verges, beaches and coastline.
Groups which participated last year should receive registration forms in the post soon. If you do not receive a form by the end of March please contact the Trust to check we have your records. New groups are very welcome, please register your group online by visiting our Group Registration page.
As well as providing an opportunity for the community to get together to improve their environment, taking part in the Redd Up can raise funds for local groups through sponsorship, and businesses and schools can earn points towards environmental schemes and awards. This year, for the first time, Young Scot card holders can also earn points through the Young Scott Reward Scheme.
