We tactically hid an empty Ennerdale Ale bottle on the beach with a Brewery Tour Voucher for 4 people hidden inside of it, in an attempt to give people incentive to get involved in the litter picking. And it worked! It was a great turn out with around 50 people (and a handful of dogs) coming down to join in with the clean up.
The team of volunteers met at Club 135, where they were kitted out with litter picking utensils, then headed out to tackle trash in the town and on the beaches of Whitehaven. Matthew Rush was the lucky winner who found the bottle and our Brewery Tour giveaway. Congratulations Matthew, give us a call to book your prize!
Rory Wood, founder of Midas Watches and organiser of the Trashtag event told us “It’s had a great reach in the local community so far… these will definitely be monthly events”.
So if you missed out on Trashtag this time don’t worry, you can always come and do your bit at the next one. We’re lucky to live in a beautiful part of the world, lets not let litter ruin it for us!
