Thames clean-up to take place on Isle of Dogs
East Londoners are being urged to join a Thames clean-up on the Isle of Dogs on Friday.
Volunteers are wanted by charity Thames21 for the event which will mark an international day of action.
Over 260 people took part in last year's challenge along the Thames, clearing eight tonnes of litter from three areas of the river.
Chris Coode, senior programmes manager for Thames21, said: "Volunteers in our annual Cleaner Thames Challenge have dramatically reduced the build-up of harmful litter on the foreshore.
"This is your chance to have a direct impact on the health of our capital's iconic river and be a part of a global movement to clean up our ocean, rivers and lakes."
The action runs from 8am to 11am on Friday, September 20. The nearest station is Island Gardens DLR.
