'Thank you to all the people that volunteered to be stewards and litter-pickers and to the people who did other odd jobs and the day,' a spokesperson stated.
Thanks also goes to stall-keepers, Rumbles, The Coffee Dock and Barbra's Ice-Cream Van as well as shopkeepers that allowed them to put collection tins in their shops, including Southgate Barbers, Connors Butchers, Just a thought and Crazy Fruit in Southgate Shopping Centre, Farrell & son Family Butchers in Weaton Hall, Woks Chinese Cookin in Weaton Hall, Durnin's Butchers in Bryanstown Manor, Eddie Rockets on the Marsh Road and Dominic's Takeaway in George's Street, the Moorland Café, Chicken Hut, Four-Star Pizza, News Rail in the Laurence Centre, Darby O' Gills, the Salt House, Lamb's Butchers, Tuite's Butchers, Kieran's Butchers and the Red Rose Café.
