TLC2, Team Limerick clean up two to is to take place in 2016. The initiative is being launched by Paul O’Connell and JP McManus.
The hugely successful Team Limerick Clean-up that took place last Good Friday is set to be repeated next year. Check out the video on last year’s clean up below. Paul O’Connell and JP McManus recently launched the re-branded TLC2 at the University of Limerick. The major clean-up day will take place on Good Friday, March 25, 2016, when thousands of volunteers will be encouraged to come out in force once again, to pick litter in their local areas throughout the city and county.
In addition to the volunteer participation next year, TLC2 will be asking fast food outlets and convenience stores throughout Limerick to support the initiative, by displaying merchandise and posters to further promote the safe discarding of disposable food and drinks packaging.
TLC2, is an initiative sponsored by the JP McManus Benevolent Fund and administered by Limerick City and County Council. Endorsed by Paul O’Connell, the official partners of TLC2 include, Mr Binman, The Limerick Leader and Limerick’s Live 95FM.
Commenting at the launch, Paul O’Connell said, “Our inaugural event was incredible with over 10,000 volunteers taking part. Next year we hope to get more sports clubs and schools involved so the whole concept of keeping your locality tidy starts at grass roots level upwards. We all know that general litter waste in our city and county is an on-going issue, so we will be asking volunteers to come out again next Good Friday and enjoy the morning picking, sweeping and clearing their areas – essentially it’s easy and a bit of fun!”
Sue Ann Foley, Chairperson of the JP McManus Benevolent Fund said, “We are delighted that TLC2 will take place again next year. This is a great initiative in which communities throughout the whole of Limerick can participate across all generations to help make our county a cleaner place. I would like to acknowledge the tremendous support which Limerick City & County Council provides TLC2, along with our partners Mr Binman, The Limerick Leader and Limerick’s Live 95FM.”
