Ballina Community Cleanups in Mayo has been announced as winners of Get Ireland Growing Community Growbox initiative.
Ballina Community Clean-Ups is a group of volunteers who believe in diversity and biodiversity.
The volunteers recently redesigned an area near the river and created the #beelieveinballina trend, which consists of promoting and implementing biodiversity throughout the town.
The Beelieve in Ballina campaign captured public imagination with their rejuvenation efforts for Ballina and use of recycled materials.
Over 100 people have come out to support the group’s weekly clean-up operations at different locations around the town and the group has a number of future projects underway and planned for Ballina.
