Clean Jurassic Coast Champions

We have many volunteers helping us out on the many CJC litter picking missions. The CJC Champions are a select group of volunteers who've dedicated themselves to cleaning the Jurassic Coast and helping the planet. Our champions regularly go above and beyond the call of duty.

Volunteering is a great way to get outdoors, doing something wonderful for the planet and make new friends. If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch.

 

In no particular order, come and meet our Champions;

Cat, Tom and Alfie

We live near Blandford and when we aren’t working (midwife and gas engineer), we are outdoors - that normally means the beach! And more often than not it’s somewhere along the Jurassic Coast.

We came across the photos on Instagram showing the amount of litter that had been left along our coast and instead of just sharing in the online outrage, we wanted to physically help too, and are glad we did, it’s nice to try and do our little bit to help, however small.

Alfie is 8 and loves the beach, whether he’s swimming in the sea or digging holes in the sand. Alfie wanted to join in in the beach cleans as much as we did (he was very excited when he got his first litter picker!), his favourite part is definitely hunting for bottle caps!

Rhea and Dave

 

We are both performing arts teachers and musicians and when we are not step ball changing or guitar twiddling, you will most likely find us at the beach.

 

We have always been lovers of nature, and after a long battle with being animal lovers yet eating meat, we turned vegetarian in 2017. This small step put us on the path to educating ourselves on what else we could do to help reduce our carbon footprint and take better care of the planet.

 

As keen paddleboarders, we love the sea and like so many others, we are utterly shocked at the amount of litter and plastic left and washed up at some of our most favourite beauty spots. After doing some of our own small beach cleans we decided we wanted to do more, so reached out to Clean Jurassic Coast to learn of their volunteering opportunities. We are so glad we did as we have met wonderful like-minded people who share our love for protecting the planet.

Note: Rhea and Dave have set up a fundraiser to help CJC.

Charlotte

 

I am a recent Physical Geography Graduate and I have been involved in multiple environmental projects - the field trips at the beach were always my favourite.

 

In my spare time, I go sea swimming with friends and I have been walking the Jurassic Coast on scout camps, family hikes and days out for the past 10 years.

 

The amount of rubbish accumulating on our beaches upset me and in turn, spurred me on to help!

 

Discovering Clean Jurassic Coast has given me an opportunity to give back to an area I love!

George and Amy

Together we have a massive love for the utterly beautiful coast, the Jurassic coast to be exact! When we are not working and rushing around with our manic lives, you will find us exploring on our paddleboards all around the coast or walking for miles inland.
Over the years we have spent our time travelling around the world and the amount of litter we used to find washed up on the beautiful untouched beaches was heartbreaking and genuinely not nice

to see. We would find ourselves spending hours on end helping to clean the beaches and rid these beautiful places of the horrible plastics and wastes that we humans leave behind. From doing this it has made us want to help do the same back home in England on our beautiful, precious and protected coasts.

 

Originally we would go out on our own to pick litter from the beaches until we found Roy and the Clean Jurassic Coast team and now, together as a team, we are making a small difference on what is a big problem.. To be around a group of people who share the same values, love and respect as we do for the coast, is a truly amazing feeling and together we will fight the war on the waste found on our truly amazing coasts and beaches.
