Ealing Borough Council Launches New BetterPoints Reward Programme

12 kwietnia 2018

Love your Park

Welcome to 'Love your Park.'  This is a funded programme brought to you in partnership with Ealing Borough Council’s Pride in my Park initiative.

This programme is aimed at residents of Ealing, where you can earn rewards for litter picking in a variety of the Borough's superb green spaces. It needn't be just litter picking though! Join a Friends Of Park group or even just volunteer informally. How about some gardening for the green-fingered amongst you or help to keep our spaces spick and span, if you're handy with a hammer or paintbrush?

There's even a Walk and Pick First Activity Bonus where you earn 500 BetterPoints simply by getting out for a walk and picking up litter for the first time within 14 days of downloading the app. You can then use your BetterPoints to reward yourself, by selecting any of these rewards, or donate them to any of the charities from this list or even your local Friends Of Park group. If you spot a charity you'd like to see on the BetterPoints website let us know by getting in touch here.

Help keep the parks in Ealing stay clean and tidy whilst getting outside in the fresh air. Earn 100 BetterPoints for every day you pick litter and earn BetterTickets into our special prize draw each month for every week in which you Walk and Pick at least 3 times. We'll be giving away 50,000 BetterPoints to you and 50,000 BetterPoints to your favourite Friends of Park group!

See you in the parks!
