Following on from their 2 days volunteering at Hexthorpe Park in May removing Himalayan balsam, the Doncaster Restart team have completed another volunteer session down at the River Don.

The team worked hard picking up litter, and over the course of a day managed to collect 15 full black bin bags full of rubbish, an old, rusted bike and several bags of cement (all pictured above) – this is an excellent contribution made towards making the riverside rubbish free.

Commissioned and funded by the Department for Work and Pensions, The Growth Company delivers the Restart Scheme in South Yorkshire on behalf of Maximus UK, the lead provider for this region. The Restart Scheme is a government scheme providing up to 12 months of enhanced support to help you find a job in your local area. It's designed to break down any employment barriers that could be holding you back from finding work.
