Strandliners CIC (Community Interest Company) is delighted to announce a recent financial award from the Jempson Foundation to support the group’s efforts to clear local beaches and riverbanks of toxic plastics and other marine waste. On Monday, June 17, Dominic Plomer-Roberts from Jempson’s in Peasmarsh handed a cheque of £100 to Andy Dinsdale, principal director of Strandliners. Andy said:” We are thrilled to receive this award. It shows how a community can get together to meet a critical challenge fighting marine waste. Strandliners is most grateful to the Foundation for its generous support.
The recently incorporated organisation is finding encouragement from other quarters too. Sea Changers, a charity that funds grass roots marine conservation projects in the UK, announced on the same day, Monday 17, that Strandliners is among the successful applicants in the charity’s annual round of giving. The monies received are earmarked for a soon to be launched community education programme.
