Alan Gordon, owner of The Bakery Shop in Aigburth, noticed a litter problem in local parks and urged his community to create change with a reward of his delicious treats!
He is offering a free food and drink for every bag of litter that is dropped to the shop.
The litter problem was particularly noticeable for Alan when lockdown 1 began and more members of the public were utilising local parks for their daily walks. He said that when taking his children to the areas the bins were overflowing which prompted him to get a public bin outside his shop.
Gordon posted on Facebook encouraging customers to help clean up Sefton, Otterspool, Greenbank and Aigbuth by filling bags of litter in return for a free coffee, slush or ice cream.
He has encouraged many families visit his shop with litter and hopes it will initiate a chain reaction for the community.
Alan Gordon said: "South Liverpools parks are wonderful let's keep it that way".
