Tidy result for Dorset beaches

26 May 2016

Staff from Trethowans Poole office have shown their commitment to the local area by rolling up their sleeves and taking part in a beach clean-up this week.

A team of six employees, lead by Trainee Rebecca Buxton, took to Studland beach as part of the mission to complete 150 good deeds in the local community in our 150th year.

James Braund, senior associate in the personal injury team at Trethowans’ Poole office said: “Dorset’s beaches are the jewels in the county’s crown and we’re passionate about keeping them clean. The beaches provide a place where young people can explore and learn about the coastline and they’re also a big draw for tourists, who spend money with local businesses and support the Dorset economy. We’re proud to play a part in keeping the coast litter-free.”

Kevin Rideout, visitor experience officer at The National Trust’s Knoll Beach Centre, said: “Litter not only looks unpleasant but also poses a risk to wildlife, which can get caught in things like cans and plastic packaging. We’re very grateful to Trethowans staff for giving up their time to come and volunteer at the beach and playing their part in keeping our coastline clean.”

Trethowans is currently celebrating its 150th year by undertaking 150 good deeds. So far in Poole we have supported local sailing events, sporting groups and donated gifts to Julia’s House hospice charity.
