It’s still not quite summer but that didn’t stop National Schools Partnership, M&S, the Marine Conservation Society, and a few hundred children from hitting the beach last week.
Big Beach Clean-up events with local schools took place in Aberdeen, Castlerock, Southsea, Scarborough and Shoeburyness as part of M&S School of Fish – an education programme teaching 400,000 primary school pupils about protecting the future of fish.
As well as removing litter from the beach, children took part in special coastal crime scene investigation activities. M&S celebrity ambassador Joanna Lumley gave the kids a hand in Shoeburyness, while Blowfish, our resident marine biologist, taught them a thing or two about the sea and the importance of protecting the environment.
The events were a great success so thank you to everyone who took part!
