Volunteering: ACCA join the Northbank for litter picking

ACCA – litter picking in London

“On 10 October, we rolled up our sleeves and got busy picking up litter in Victoria Embankment Gardens, very close to the Adelphi building.  Working in partnership with the Northbank BID (a local initiative supporting our business district), we were joined by 3 members of their team who provided us with the route, gloves and equipment to get the job done!  This initiative gave us the opportunity to give something back to our local community – and most importantly the environment.  The Northbank team were so friendly and we were surprised at how much litter we collected in just a couple of hours.  We would like to say a big thank you to Tom, Carlos and Guillermo for their support – a great experience for the whole team.”

Evergreen Embankment: green wall

This new and vibrant addition to the Northbank enhances the look of the local area, helps to improve air quality and encourages local biodiversity. Lighting also brightens the entry into the West End for visitors and sends commuters home with a sparkle.

The wall includes lighting and the following plants:

  • Bergenia
  • Liriope
  • Lamium/Convolvulus
  • Brunnera/Convolvulus
  • Asplenium
  • Euphorbia
  • Heuchera
