Beach Buddies makes it very simple to get involved in beach cleaning. We hold events every week of the year, and special events for any groups, clubs, Scouts, schools, Guides, companies who want to “make a difference” to the beaches and protect wildlife.
The equipment is very simple – a litterpicker, a bin bag, a pair of gloves – and a human being!
We provide all the equipment and always give a safety talk beforehand, especially for younger volunteers, and Beach Buddies removes all materials collected, and recycle as much as possible. Beach Buddies has full public liability insurance and also has numerous Risk Assessments, all available on request.
Families are particularly welcome, and we are keen to encourage as many groups and clubs as possible to take part for an hour, or longer if you get hooked!
Our sessions are normally 90 minutes, at weekends. But there are no obligations, no need to register – just turn up and enjoy being involved. Even if you can only help for a few minutes, it is very much appreciated. Beach cleaning is for all ages and abilities, and we anyone and everyone.
We also warmly welcome Duke of Edinburgh Award candidates to enjoy Beach Buddies as part of their volunteering commitment.
