Rain fails to dampen spirits during clean-up parade

Despite the dreary conditions, volunteers were in good spirits as they helped contribute to the environment and clean up the campus.

CQUniversity Arts student Glen Marshall said he was impressed by the number of volunteers who took part, despite the weather, which dampened the efforts.

"We had got most of it done, but we were out in the rain for the last part," he said.

CQUniversity Mackay students participate in Clean Up Australia Day annually.

"This is where most of us live so it's important for us to help with cleaning it up," he said.

The CQUniversity Mackay campus was sparkling after the clean-up efforts.

An estimated 591,400 volunteers took part in sites across Australia last year.
