2017 - Grant Award - £350 

Local people play a huge role in looking after the fabulous coastline of the Strangford Lough and Lecale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Sadly, even here litter can pose a threat to wildlife and people as well as being unsightly. The Strangford Lough and Lecale Partnership (SLLP) is delighted that Sea-Changers will help them and teams of local Scouts to take direct action to tackle this along beautiful Ballyhornan Beach.

The Scout Centre is just 200 metres from the beach in County Down, on the East Coast of Northern Ireland. Given its location, the centre is ideally located for housing shore clean-up equipment purchased through Sea-Changers, and as a base for shore cleaning activities with visiting Scout and community groups.  SLLP staff will be on hand to not only help with the clean ups but also convey some of the wonders of our shore creatures and plants.

 

 

 

 

 

“Sea-Changers is helping us to raise awareness of the impacts of human activity on the environment and instil a sense of pride in young people who will be equipped and committed to caring for their stretch of coastline, for their use and for the use of future generations” said SLLP Manager, Caroline Nolan.
