Volunteering is a great way to make a difference in our local community. But did you know, volunteering can also help improve your wellbeing, develop new skills or boost your confidence?  Volunteering with your colleagues is also a great team building activity.

Join other Bankside volunteers for this beach clean on the Thames foreshore, led by our recycling partner 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 1.30pm for a briefing from Recorra before heading down to the foreshore where we will work our way back towards 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.
