Clean Coasts and Barefoot Wines are delighted to bring you the ‘Beach Rescue Project’ on the 8th of July in Strandhill, Co. Sligo.
The event is part of Barefoot’s ‘World Beach Rescue Day’, a campaign which has supported over 14,000 volunteers since its launch 11 years ago, in several countries including the US, Mexico and Germany.
The Beach Resuce Project is being held in Ireland for the first time and it aims to create a fun and festive atmosphere whilst drawing attention to coastal issues such as marine litter and dune erosion.
The day’s activities are open to the public and include beach yoga, surfing demos, face-painting, sand sculpting, marram grass planting, ‘Talks in the Park’, and most importantly a Big Beach Clean.
We will also be throwing an after-party in The Strand Bar to thank everyone who takes part in the beach clean. The party will include a BBQ, live music from soul singing sensation Buck Taylor and for those over 18, a free glass of Barefoot wine to toast a job well done!
There will also be plenty of giveaways on the day, including prizes for those who collect the most litter.
