The Great Sheffield River Cleanup

The Great Sheffield River Cleanup

Adelaide Ln, Sheffield, S3 8BR

Part of the Sheffield Adventure Film Festival, Don Catchment Rivers Trust will be taking part in the Great Sheffield River Cleanup on Saturday 23rd March between 10am and 3pm.

Join DCRT and the River Stewardship Company on their cleanup to take vital action to improve the health of the River Don and protect Sheffield against future flooding. They will be working on the stretch of the river between Ball Street Bridge and the Gardener’s rest on Kelham Island and they need Sheffield’s active and adventurous community to help out!

There will be a choice of activities: young children can help make a bug hotel, there will be litter picking galore, and if you fancy working up a sweat you can help fish out the odd car bumper, or join the pruning squad. You can join in for as long as you like between screenings at the Showroom.

Finish the day feeling like a waterway warrior and celebrate with your fellow river rats at ShAFF’s second selection of adrenaline-fuelled, water-inspired adventure films (Water Films 1) on Saturday night.

On the day, please register at the Great Sheffield River Clean-up basecamp outside Kelham Island Kitchen. All the protective gear you need will be provided but please bring warm clothes and wear sturdy footwear!
