VOLUNTEERS are needed to help with a beach litter-pick in Sand Bay next month.
Marks and Spencer is running its fourth annual Big Beach Clean Up on May 12.
The event is being run in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society and is hoping to bring residents and businesses together to help scoop up litter.
Store manager at Weston’s Marks and Spencer in High Street, Kim Baker, said: “A fantastic effort was made last year with around 250km of coastline and canals cleared which resulted in 4,000 binbags full of litter collected across the country.
“This year we’re calling upon as many people as possible to take part in their local Big Beach Clean Up event. It’s a great initiative that brings communities together to do something worthwhile but it’s always great fun too.”
The event will take place on May 12 from 9.30am at Sand Bay.
