Sign up for the big M&S beach clean at Castlerock

MARKS & Spencer is calling on its customers and employees to don their wellies and volunteer to help their local community by cleaning the beach at Castlerock.

With the support of the Marine Conservation Society and the Canal & River Trust, this year’s M&S Big Beach Clean-up will take place at 113 beaches across the UK including Castlerock.

The event will take place on Friday, April 26 and it is hoped that many local people will get involved.

The target is to clear more than 15 tonnes of litter - more than the weight of a double decker bus - from all 113 beaches.

Simon Lucas, Head of Region for M&S in Northern Ireland said: “Our Big Beach Clean-up is a great way for customers and M&S colleagues to volunteer, help their local community and protect our precious marine life.

“It’s a great fun, outdoor activity that gives our customers and staff the opportunity to help the environment and their community.

“We are encouraging anyone who wishes to attend the Castlerock beach clean to register in advance at www.mcsuk.org/foreverfish to receive a money-off at M&S voucher on the day.”
