Employees at Berwick’s Marks & Spencer Simply Food are set to descend on the town’s beach to free it from litter as part of this year’s Big Beach Clean-up.
Taking place on Friday, April 15 from 1.30pm, the Big Beach Clean-up is hosted in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) and invites local residents to join in the litter picking activities.
Customers that register for the event in advance at www.mcsuk.org/foreverfish will also receive a money-off M&S voucher on the day of their beach clean.
Sacha Berendji, director of retail at Marks & Spencer, said: “Our Big Beach Clean-up 2013 exceeded all expectations and made a significant impact on local communities. This year our beaches and canals, and in turn our marine life, need us and our army of volunteers more than ever before.
“It’s a fun, outdoor activity and I’m confident we can go one step further and surpass last year’s litter haul. And, as an incentive, there’s a £5 money-off voucher for every customer that gets involved.”
