DOING their bit for the community, these youngsters took to the streets to help out with a spruce-up.

As part of the Love Where You Live campaign, members of the Launch Pad group at the Jubilee Centre, in Farringdon, Sunderland, were tasked with helping to address problems caused by litter, graffiti, dog fouling and antisocial behaviour in the area.

They have designed signs to raise awareness and help tackle the problems.

Housing provider Gentoo granted the group £750 for the signs to be printed and distributed on lampposts in the area.

Lighting contractor Aurora has also agreed to attach the signs to the lighting columns in Allendale Road.
