Beach Clean

I am so proud of my 17 year old Son and his friends....On Saturday 18th September, they did a sponsored Beach Clean. This was to raise funds for Oliver's impending trip to Nepal. He is going out there with a charity to work in the Orphanage at Pohara, for 2 weeks.
Despite pouring rain they walked the length of Ramsey beach, which took them 3 hours, picking up any rubbish. They unbelievably collected 20 bags of rubbish!! now not all of this will be local rubbish, the tides bring in stuff from all over.
I just think it was a wonderful thing they all did to help raise money for Oliver's trip, but also to help the local community at the same time.....see teenagers aren't all that bad!
