Cruise passengers to take part in beach clean – 3FM
Cruise passengers arriving on Island today will be helping to spruce up Manx shores.
More than 200 people on board the Hurtigruten vessel will be teaming up with local charity, Beach Buddies, to clear up litter at Hango Hill in Derbyhaven with residents also being invited to take part.
Beach Buddies Founder, Bill Dale, is describing the occasions as another ‘major first’ for the charity and it’ll showcase what a ‘very special place’ the Isle of Man is.
Meanwhile, 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.
