Clean-up planned for beach

Have your say

A BAND of volunteers will be hitting the beach as part of a huge clean up.

Staff from Marks and Spencer in Sunderland will be going along to Seaham beach as part of the Big Beach Clean-up, which aims to clean up 140 beaches across the UK.

Taking place on Monday, April 28, from 10am, the Big Beach Clean-up is hosted in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society and residents are invited to go along and join in the litter picking activities.

This year’s target is to clear more than last year’s massive haul of 30 tonnes of litter – the equivalent weight of two double decker buses.
