Dave B: An Engineer’s Path to Eco-Warrior

From Mechanical Engineering to Murder Mystery, Dave’s Litter Picking Lights Up Leicester

Dave Winner

Dave B, from Whetstone, near Leicester, is not your ordinary retiree. With a rich history as a mechanical engineer who once built high-power lasers, Dave’s retirement is anything but idle. Inspired by his daughter, he's turned his daily walks into litter-picking expeditions, proving that retirement can be the start of impactful community service.

Dave’s approach to environmental care is simple: if you see a problem, solve it. This philosophy has led him to become a local eco-warrior, encouraging others to take ownership of their surroundings. His dedication serves as a powerful reminder that age and retirement are not barriers to making a significant environmental impact.

With his LitterLotto winnings, Dave is planning practical and heartfelt expenditures. While supporting his grandson's driving lessons is a priority, he's also considering personal treats, reflecting his belief in balanced self-care and community care.

Dave’s story is a tapestry of diverse experiences, from coast-to-coast walks for charity to captivating audiences as a murder mystery actor and even portraying multiple roles in theatre. Each chapter of his life enriches his role as an eco-warrior, making his litter-picking journey one of continuous discovery and adventure.

As we approach Global Recycling Day on March 18th, Dave's story aligns perfectly with the global call to action for more sustainable living practices. His life demonstrates that every one of us has the power to contribute to a cleaner, greener world, one piece of litter at a time.
