Dividing the team into two groups armed with protective gloves, pickers and bags, several items were retrieved along the stretch of coastline.
These included broken plastic, plastic and paper bags, cigarette butts and food wrappers as well as straws, beverage cans, styrofoam cups and discarded metal. All the items retrieved were then bagged up, segregated and disposed of responsibly in the day’s following the event.
Spectra’s Managing Director, Joe Maynard, who also took part in the clean up said,
“Yet again our staff have shown they are willing to get involved in projects that can make a genuine difference, which can only be applauded. Events such as these also provide an excellent opportunity for staff and their families to get to know each other and I’m sure everyone will look forward to the next one”.
This recent venture is the latest in a long line of events organised by Spectra staff and clearly demonstrates an undeniable social responsibility. Other self-organised initiatives staged by employees include regular baking and coffee morning events for Macmillan Cancer Support and Children in Need as well as annual gift box donations to Operation Christmas Child.
