BHA’s tenant volunteers take part in beach clean-up.

Posted In

Berwickshire Housing Association’s tenant volunteers are lending their support to the biggest partnership action against litter on the Berwickshire and north Northumberland coastline. 

The event, to be held on Saturday March 21, is being organised by Sea the Change which has brought together a variety of local groups and organisations for a cross Border coastal clean-up.

It is hoped that this huge event can not only draw the community’s attention to the issue of litter on beaches but also to encourage people to play their part in protecting, respecting and appreciating the coastline. 

Juliana Amaral from Sea the Change said: “We are extremely grateful to have support from Berwickshire Housing Association and be able to work in partnership. The tenant volunteers’ funding will enable us to purchase equipment and other essentials required for the event.

“Funding is of vital importance in keeping voluntarily led organisations and local groups active, enabling events of this kind to take place and bring our communities together for a good cause.”

Sea the Change is looking for volunteers of all ages and abilities to take part in the clean-up, and there will be meet-up point across all parts of Berwickshire and north Northumberland.

Juliana Amaral added: “If you love our coastline, we need your help to clean it up. From Cove to Goswick, you can come litter picking with the walkers, plogging with the runners or diving against debris with the divers.

“We have lots of fantastic organisations on both sides of the border joining us on the day, and, if you would like to come and help us please get in touch. We welcome people of all ages and abilities, beach wheelchairs can be made available in Coldingham if required.”
