Lead Your Community – Big Spring Beach Clean 17

The campaign

THANK YOU for volunteering to lead a Big Spring Beach Clean. Without you this amazing project simply wouldn’t exist, so we’d better get started!

STEP 1 – Leading a beach clean is as easy as ABC and all you have to do to get started is email Jack at [email protected] with these details;

  • Your name
  • The name of the beach/es you’d like to clean
  • A little about your reasons for getting involved

STEP 2 – We’ll then begin guiding you though our simple step by step guide (at the bottom of this page), helping you to plan, promote and deliver your own community beach clean safely and enjoyably.

STEP 3 – Once you have registered your Big Spring Beach Clean we will add it to our Events Page (alongside hundreds of others!) and send out your official ‘SAS Beach Clean Kit’

We can’t wait to hear from you, so please drop us that email [email protected] and join the SAS Beach Clean Team today!

Thanks, SAS HQ
