Recently members of the Osborne team were invited by their customer Optivo , to help on a beach clean at St Leonards Beach in Hastings.
Vanessa Biddess, the Head of Region for Sussex Neighbourhoods, organised the beach clean and volunteers from Osborne were invited to join Optivo to spend the perfect summer day litter picking the beach.
The team were asked to look specifically for small plastics, which is a big issue on the environmental agenda worldwide.
By the end of the day, several bags of rubbish were collected and some interesting items including a full set of cutlery were retrieved!
Hilary at Osborne, shared her thoughts on the beach clean;
“I felt it was a simple thing to do with our development days and it was heart-warming that people on the beach took the time to thank us for beach cleaning. We should all consider doing things such as beach cleans with our children and families. It is important to our community and it makes a difference to their lives and the environment.”
Thank you to Optivo for arranging the day and to all the volunteers who were involved in this important initiative.
