In association with uMhlanga UIP, Granada Square have donated R5000 towards cleaning up the environment and, in specific, making uMhlanga a cleaner place for all.
With the donation, uMhlanga UIP have committed to actively rolling out 5 projects all focused on cleaning and greening. As with many projects it is difficult to action work without compensation, therefore a large majority of the funds will be used to pay for the staff needed to get the work done. The funds will also be allocated to equipment such as bags / gloves / plants etc, all of which are needed for a successful clean-up.
The following dates and times are scheduled to complete the projects. Save the date if you are wanting to get involved as a volunteer.
- Wednesday, 21st March – The uMhlanga promenade Dune rehab from 09h30 – 11h30.
- Thursday, 22nd and Friday, 23rd March – Alien vegetation removal on the uMhlanga promenade
