NCS Action Day: Trip to Bridlington sees Changemakers make positive environmental impact
Posted on 14th April 2022 at 17:41
On Monday 11th of April, participants from the Tigers Trust's NCS Changemakers group took part in a litter pick at Bridlington Beach in an attempt to reduce pollution along the East Yorkshire Coast.
Statistics revealed by the UK Government in 2018 reported that around 100,000 marine mammals and turtles and 1 million sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually.
NCS Officer Elliott Greenfield said he was proud of the difference the Changemakers group were able to make at Bridlington and hopes that it can provide inspiration for other young people to make a difference.
He said: "It was fantastic to get out in Bridlington to collect some litter and the group managed to collect many bags of litter to help reduce the environmental impact along the East Yorkshire coastline.
"I am incredibly proud of our young people for coming together and delivering this ace project.
"Thanks to Northern rail for providing the services for us to access Bridlington from Hull, it was a memorable day using your trains and definitely made the journey quicker, easier and more comfortable."
"Another thank you to Dom, the Head of NCS, for coming along to our social action project and getting involved!"
Jazz, an NCS Changemaker, said it was great to be able to give back to the community to make a difference.
She said: "The beach clean for me felt really rewarding, by having an input and making the environment a safer and cleaner place for the locals and tourest,
"The smallest of inputs can make someone's day and I'm proud to say I was a part of the social action."
The Tigers Trust would like to say thank you to the Coastal Services for granting us access to Bridlington Beaches.
