BAND OF LOCAL M&S VOLUNTEERS SET TO TACKLE CRAMOND BEACH LITTER WITH HELP OF EDINBURGH WESTERN MSP COLIN KEIR 

WHEN: Monday 11th May. Beach clean begins at 10.30am. 

WHERE: Cramond Causeway, Edinburgh, EH4 6HU. On street parking is available next to the entrance to the beach.

WHAT: THIS Monday, the Edinburgh community will descend Cramond Beach as part of M&S’ Big Beach Clean-up, to free it from litter and help protect local marine life.

M&S Big Beach Clean-up is being hosted in partnership with the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) and will see local residents; businesses and schools join employees from M&S Princes Street, Fort Kinnaird and Ocean Terminal to scoop up unwanted rubbish.

Following the clean-up event, volunteers will be able to relax on deckchairs and enjoy entertainment with a twist. Giant versions of some of Britain’s best loved party games including Connect Four, Jenga, Twister, Draughts and Snakes & Ladders will be set up on the beach for people to have fun after the litter-clearing work is done.

The 4th annual Big Beach Clean-up  events take place at 145 beaches and canals up and down the country between the 7th and 13th May. It is expected that over 8,000 people (3,000 M&S employees and 5,000 M&S customers) will take part.
