In the quaint village of Crawcrook, nestled 7 miles west of Newcastle, Ellie has become a local beacon of environmental activism, all thanks to her daily routines with her loyal spaniel, Archie. Discovered through a Facebook group, Ellie's litter-picking journey began with a simple motivation but has since blossomed into a passionate commitment to her community's well-being.

Semi-retired and currently working part-time at a local petrol station, Ellie finds the time to make each walk with Archie an eco-mission. Their efforts are not only about keeping the streets clean but also about setting a powerful example for her family, proving that small actions can lead to significant environmental change.

Ellie's engagement with LitterLotto turned her passion into an opportunity to win prizes, making her daily eco-friendly habit even more rewarding. With her recent win, she's planning a much-deserved holiday, fulfilling a promise to her children for their involvement in litter picking, and perhaps, enjoying some of the North East Coast's finest ice cream.

Her advice to anyone considering joining the cause is straightforward: "Do it." Ellie's story illustrates that environmental care can seamlessly integrate into our lives, offering rewards beyond just a cleaner community. Whether it's through her love for Zumba, despite her self-proclaimed directional challenges, or the joy of family holidays, Ellie embodies the spirit of an eco-warrior.

As she continues to inspire those around her, Ellie and Archie's daily walks underscore the impact we can all have on our surroundings. Their story is a reminder that with a bit of effort and a lot of love, we can make our world a little cleaner, one piece of litter at a time.
