Recycling giants Veolia will open the doors of their Southwark plant this Saturday and will raise money for the Evelina London Children’s Hospital.
A special “Wonder Open Day” will be held on September 19 as part of the Open House London festival, which celebrates city’s architecture.
Money raised will be put towards the News’ Evelina appeal, which is currently just £7,500 short of its £100,000 target.
The day will feature interactive exhibits to teach children about materials and recyclables, as well as wild bird displays, a bouncy castle and face painting.
Fabrice Bouchon, manager for Veolia Southwark, said: “We continually look for ways to support local communities and as Evelina Children’s Hospital is the largest provider of children’s services in south London, this is a great charity to support for our annual Wonder Open Day.”
Southwark Integrated Waste Management Facility, at 43 Devon Street, SE15, will be opening its doors for the Wonder Open Day on Saturday 19 September from 10am until 4pm.
