TWO young friends have been putting on the marigolds to keep Ossett clean while helping to raise cash for people with head injuries.

William Bubb, 11, and Harry Gunning, 12, both Year 7 pupils at Ossett Academy, have formed a formidable litter-picking team.

And armed with rubber gloves and bin bags, the boys have working to encourage people to bin their rubbish.

William’s mum Diana Bubb said: “It’s lovely, his brother did something like this last year too.

“It’s been part of a school project to say how important it is to pick up your litter and how important it is to keep the community looking nice and clean.”

But the team were not only helping keep the streets looking tidy, they were also collecting sponsors for the litter pick to raise money and awareness for the Second Chance centre in Wakefield.

The Headway centre in Wakefield city centre provides support for brain injured adults and their families.

Mrs Bubb added: “We had a family friend that used the facility for 10 years because he had an accident, and he had great support.

“It was just a lovely thing for the boys to do and sponsoring is so easy it’s not much to ask for a few pounds.”

So far the the two boys have managed to raise £50 for the centre.
