One excellent way to feel better inside and better connected is by volunteering to make a difference to your environment.

Plastics are a problem on the Thames. Plastic waste consistently makes up over 60% of litter found on UK beaches and the issue with plastic waste is that it never disappears, it just gets smaller and smaller. 

Join other Bankside volunteers for this morning clean-up on the Thames foreshore, led by Recorra, to help remove plastic waste from the banks of the Thames. You’ll be surprised at the volume and variety of plastics that can be found by the river, helping to remove these will make an immediate difference to our local environment as well as wider marine ecosystems.

Meet at Gabriel’s Wharf at 10.00am for a briefing from Recorra before heading down to the foreshore where we will work our way back to Bankside.

Please wear suitable, closed-toe shoes – we are running this event during low tide but surfaces along the Thames can be slippery. Please also dress appropriately for the weather.

High vis jackets, bin bags, litter pickers, and gloves will all be provided.

If you register but can no longer attend, please cancel with as much notice as possible to allow someone from the waiting list the opportunity to go in your place.
