Three eco-warriors gave up three hours of their time to clear litter from Weston beach in aid of different charities.
Steven, Jeremy and Dean scoured the beach for waste and collected eight bags full of rubbish.
Their haul included plastic toys, a polystyrene pool float and a rubber duck.
Dean said: "We were glad we were able to collect this rubbish to save it getting in to the sea but saddened people are still leaving their rubbish behind when visiting our beautiful beach.
"We were really surprised by the scale of litter we found.
