Big-hearted volunteers are helping to give Doncaster a touch of love for St Valentine’s Day.

For the congregation from a town church is providing car washes, clean-up campaigns and helping people put a little bit of pride back into Doncaster as part of a month-long campaign to tie in with February 14.

Organiser Gill Scott, of Legacy Church, which is just off Leger Way: “We want to do something practical and supportive to help and that’s why we came up with the Legacy Loves Doncaster campaign.

“We want to let people know that we love them and we love their communities.”

Volunteers have already been out and about undertaking litter picking duties in Clay Lane, Edlington and Skellow and skips have also been provided for local residents to get rid of waste and household rubbish.

And at the church itself on the Shaw Wood business park, volunteers have been washing cars as well as dishing up tea and refreshments.

Added Gill: “The church has had a bit of a nomadic existence - we want to let people know we are here for them.”

The skips will be in the following location and dates:

February 15: Edlington - 17 Stubbins Hill and 7 Wellington Road

February 15: Clay Lane - junction of Jefferson Avenue and Chalmers Drive

February 15: Skellow - Grace Evangelical Church, Charles Road. The venue will be hosting a pampering and beauty event for girls throughout the day.

February 22: Edlington - 17 Staveley Street and 33 Hazel Road

February 22: Clay Lane - Location to be confirmed.
