Proud to be Staffs Story: Sam Ellis

Sam Ellis's Story

"Sam approached the SU wanting to do something to help tidy up the local area and benefit the natural environment. The Union equipped Sam with the tools a PPE to go out and about. He carried out 9 hours of voluntary litter picks in the Shelton area over a weekend to help make our city a more pleasant neighbourhood. Sam's work also helps to reduce pollution and litter in the local environment. It was fantastic to see that Sam was thinking about ways to help to local area and the environment when carrying out voluntary work. "
