Coastal Clean-up (11/05/2023)

When the call went out from SIGBI for Soroptimists to involve themselves in ‘The Big Help Out’, an invitation for us all to volunteer in our local communities to mark the Coronation, our members took up the challenge.

We registered an environmental activity on The Big Help Out website, inviting others to join us for a ‘Coastal Clean-up’ on the 11th of May at Saltburn-by-the-Sea.

Armed with sacks and litter-pickers, kindly supplied by Middlesbrough Environment City and Surfers Against Sewage, members and friends tackled the litter on Saltburn Beach.

Soroptimists were joined by local people, including a young man who was volunteering as part of his Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
