Bray People - - NEWS -

THE Clean Coasts Pro­gramme and Bare­foot Wine brought the ‘Bare­foot Wines Beach Res­cue’ to Bray beach re­cently. On Satur­day, 19 May, over 335kg of waste was col­lected in just one hour thanks to the ef­forts of over 100 vol­un­teers.

The event was part of the Bare­foot Wine Beach Res­cue Project, a cam­paign which has seen over 14,000 vol­un­teers put their best foot for­ward and help clean the world’s coast­lines since its launch 12 years ago. Clean-up events have been held across the globe in­clud­ing Aus­tralia, the US, Mexico, South Korea, Puerto Rico and Ger­many.

This is the sec­ond year the event was held in Ire­land. The day’s ac­tiv­i­ties were free and in­cluded the beach clean and an af­ter party with a bar­be­cue and en­ter­tain­ment.
