Weymouth Charity Calls on Opposing Campaigners to Help

Beach Clean

8:37am 11th June 2014

Weymouth Lifeboat says they hope people who opposed their original "Balloon Race" fundraiser, will join their litter pick this weekend.

Campaigners forced the charity to re-think the event saying releasing balloons at sea would cause pollution. No balloons were released off the shore and a virtual race was born in its place.

Weymouth lifeboat is hosting a beach clear-up on Sunday morning (15th June) before a winner is selected in their new virtual race.

Organisers told us anyone wanting to help only needs a couple of bits:

"All helpers need is a strong pair of gloves or a long arm 'litter picker', a black sack and an hour of their time."
