Big Beach clean-up success!

Over 5,000 volunteers cleared over 24 tonnes of beach litter!

Thousands of people took the beaches and waterways for the third Big Beach Clean-up event organised with our Forever Fish partners, Marks and Spencer.

Sea Champions Atlanta, Libby and Michelle ran their own Big Beach Clean-up events, and Pat, Anna, Natasha, JoJo and Jess helped out at beach cleans across south England, whilst Margaret, Lesley, Rona, David, Leigh and Thomas helped out at beach cleans across Scotland.

Big thanks to Sea Champions Pat and Anna who kindly donned the MCS starfish and cod costumes at Uphill beach, and to Daisy for running children's educational activities.

Among the stuff our amazing volunteers bagged up were:
2,904 balloons
17,318 bottles
2,114 bags of dog poo
10,187 cotton bud sticks
1,266 tampons
331 condoms
21,385 wrappers
14,226 bits of fishing line

Thank you Sea Champions!
