AWAY Resorts is inviting guests to do their bit to help clean up the British coastlines this month as part of the brands ongoing partnership with Surfers Against Sewage (SAS).

For the month of May, SAS is asking volunteers to do just 10 miles of beach cleaning to help them reach their target of 1,000,000 miles in May.

And Away Resorts — who manage holiday parks in some of the UK’s most popular seaside spots — are encouraging guests (and non-guests) to get involved by picking up a litter kit to help keep beaches clean and to protect the UK’s oceans and wildlife.

To help reach their ambitious target for May, SAS will also be hosting a series of flagship beach clean events at locations across the country, with the first kicking off at Perranporth Beach in Cornwall last Sunday 1st May, followed by the digest clean at Hackney Marsh in London on 14th May and the beach at Watergate Bay in Newquay on Sunday 28th May. They have partnered with Strava to help track the miles and make it easy for volunteers to join in. Strava Surfers Against Sewage: Million Mile Clean

The events aim to bring people together in the fresh air to help make a tangible difference to protecting the British coastlines and areas that we all love. Away Resorts staff will be on hand to support these key events and will be demonstrating the importance of keeping our beaches, and beauty spots litter free.

Following the announcement of their long-term partnership with Surfers Against Sewage last summer, Away Resorts has actively encouraged guests to partake in beach cleans during their stay, offering clean-up kits at all parks and information on how they can register their beach clean to help SAS achieve their Million Mile target.

Since the launch of its Million Mile campaign SAS have had over 1,250 beach clean registrations with an appetite for volunteers to get involved in cleans in all areas across the country.

Speaking about the campaign, Away Resorts’ CEO, Carl Castledine, said: “Keeping our Great British Beaches clean and protecting the coastlines and wildlife that we’re so proud of is hugely import to us all. That’s why we’ll be rolling up our sleeves to join the next SAS beach cleans and we’ll be encouraging our guests to do their bit too.”
