Students collect 150 litter bags in five hour shifts

The litter pick was organised by Newcastle University Students’ Union’s Raising and Giving Society (RAG) and coordinated by committee members of Keep Jesmond Clean (KJC) at Jesmond Library. The 200 student volunteers who litter-picked had signed up to participate in a one-week fundraising effort to raise £8,000 for six charities. RAG president Jack Green says that target has now been exceeded.
