VOLUNTEERS are still being sought to take part in next Saturday, May 12’s Big Beach Clean-up.
Organised by the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) together with retailer Marks & Spencer, it will take place at Seaview beaches.
Volunteers are needed to take part in a fulfilling and fun day out. Anyone who registers in advance at www.mcsuk.org/foreverfish will receive an M&S money-off voucher and receive free M&S snacks on the day.
MCS chief executive Samantha Fanshawe said: "MCS surveys have shown beach litter levels are unacceptably high.
"We are delighted M&S recognises the importance of clean seas and beaches and will be joining forces with us in this major event to help turn the tide on litter."
The M&S Big Beach Clean-up is part of M&S’s Forever Fish campaign, which is funded by the 5p carrier bag charge in M&S foodhalls.
Since its introduction in 2008, the charge has reduced carrier bag use by 80 per cent and raised more than £4 million for charity.
