On the 15th Sunday we gathered to University and went straight towards Mount lavinia beach. There was lots of garbage including plastics, fishing nets polythene etc. Firstly we removed huge collection of fishing nets from the beach. It seemed very ugly and weighs much. But it couldn’t able to reduce the strength of our leos. We were able to walk about 4 or 5 km with collecting garbage. Almost all members of UoM leos work together with members of Leo club of Mathugama as brothers. It was great experience to us. During the cleaning process the leaflets were distributed while the cleaning programme officers guiding us. We handed over garbage bags and every other wastage to the waste cleaning center of the Mount Lavinia. Finally the project was ended up with a great success.
