The team collected 20 bin bags full of rubbish from the riverbanks, Kings Street and around Castle Park.

Amy Gladding, marketing manager for the company, said: "We also went round the town with buckets for the Air Ambulance and raised £250. It was really good and we had great feedback from people in the town centre, the community got behind what we were doing and it was a great atmosphere."

The design company has organised another charity litter pick that will take place on October 12 where they hope to collect even more money while clearing up the town.
