Cruise ship passengers will join efforts to keep the Islands beaches clean next month.

Those travelling on two Hurtigruten cruises arriving on March 2 and 11 will link up with local charity Beach Buddies to help spruce up beaches along the Islands southern coastline.

Hurtigruten itinerary planner, Kris Willassen, says they want to make sure ‘every shore visit enriches the lives of the local communities’ and to ‘leave a footprint’ which they can be proud of.

Beach Buddies founder, Bill Dale, is also welcoming the upcoming initiative, calling it another ‘major first’ for the organisation and the Isle of Man.
