SAS are launching their biggest Big Spring Beach Clean ever to protect the UK’s beaches, waves and wildlife from the rising tide of marine litter.
They are calling for community volunteers to lead Big Spring Beach Cleans at their favourite beaches over the weekend of the 27th – 29th of March. Set to be the biggest ever, the Big Spring Beach Clean 2015 aims to cover at least 150 beaches and mobilise up to 5,000 beach clean volunteers to remove tonnes of beach litter from around the UK coastline.
Over 75 lead volunteers have already registered to host and run events at iconic beaches covering Skye, Edinburgh, Portrush, Cardiff, Blackpool, Scarborough, Brighton, Bournemouth & Newquay.
