The sun gods were on our side once again as
43 wonderful people joined us for our August beach clean up. Of the 43 people,
10 were from Coles Services, the team responsible for the cleanliness and
trolleys at Coles Supermarkets.
Together, we collected just over 71Kgs of litter. This was mostly made up of
plastic litter including straws, coffee cup lids, chip packets and even a 10Kg
piece of Poly water pipe which had evidence of propeller damage suggesting it’s
been out in the bay and hit by a number of marine craft potentially putting
those on board’s lives at risk. So as you can see, it’s not just marine
wildlife who’s lives we are possibly saving but also that of our fellow man!
I would also like to thank our sponsors and
supporters without whos help, this would not be possible;
Frankston City Council,
Bunnings Warehouse Frankston,
Peninsula Surf Centre,
Snap Printing Frankston,
Cignall, Thompson St, Frankston,
Peninsula Camera Centre,
Foot Street Newsagency & Lotto, and
Aum Shanti Café.
I’d also like to say a big thank you to Ann
Copelin for the transport and photographs.
