LANDLORDS have put £500 into the kitty to help charity workers spruce up the Thames waterfront.

Staff at the National Landlords Association, the representative body for private-residential rental property owners, decided against sending out Christmas cards.

They used the money, instead, for a donation to the Thames 21 waterways charity to help transform London's neglected and littered waterways. The association's offices overlook the river.

The environment charity they're supporting mobilises thousands of volunteers to clean up waterside grot spots every year.

One of Thames 21's hotspots is the foreshore along the Isle of Dogs in East London, which collects much of the flotsam and jetsam caught up in the 'kink' in the Thames.
