Oarsome Chance joined Alex Thomson Racing (ATR) this week to help out on a beach clean for World Ocean's Day.

Students, staff and volunteers rolled up their sleeves and helped the ATR team pick up litter and waste from the beach at Stokes Bay and surrounding areas in a bid to preserve the beach’s beauty and protect local wildlife - part of an ongoing commitment to sustainability from both our organisations.

World Oceans Day is a global awareness day which highlights the growing need to protect our oceans. The annual event aims to educate people about the ocean, creatures and habitats and encourage people to change their behaviour, particularly when it comes to plastic usage and pollution.

John Gillard, Principal at Oarsome Chance, said: “World Oceans Day presents an opportunity to highlight how crucial it is that we protect our oceans. As a proud partner of Alex Thomson Racing, this was the perfect time to bring our teams together to raise awareness of the initiative, which is close to all of our hearts.”

The two organisations plan to host a series of subsequent beach cleans across the local area in the coming months.
