New Years Day at the Salix!

Swimmers run into the sea after throwing colored dye in the air

We are excited to announce an impressive £355 on New Year’s Day by Mari and her team! We had a lot of brave swimmers take a dip in the sea all in aid of Blue Seas Protection.
On the warmest New Years Day on record at least thirty swimmers entered the waters. Despite the mild temperatures the waters were still freezing. As the swimmers set off down hope beach an environmentally safe cornflour dye was thrown into the air making for a colorful and impressive sight.

Back on shore, our Blue Seas Mascot Lobby made his rounds and kept the onlookers entertained with some great dance moves. It was a great day in our Marine Conservation Zone and we hope the people we had discussions with found them to be insightful. We love sharing all the exciting things we find along our beaches and ensure that the public knows of the importance of Marine Conservation.
We had many members of the public make their own donations and take an interest in the work we do. Without donations we would not be able to function as a charity. So a great big thank you to everybody who stopped by our table.

We would of course like to thank Mari and all the team at Salix for all their hard work and for organising a successful event!
