A helping hand for World Oceans Day

  • Our Jess lends a hand at the event in Cleethorpes

8 Jun 2017

Being born and bred in Grimsby, here at Big Fish Brand we are of course acutely aware of the sea and the impact it can have on our environment, our health and our economy so we definitely wanted to do something to mark World Oceans Day!

World Oceans Day is a global day of celebration and collaboration on projects to help secure a better future for our oceans.

A week or so ago BigFish Brand team members Jess and Steve were at the Discovery Centre in Cleethorpes (just next door to Grimsby) for a World Oceans Day event, organised by VANEL (Volunteer Action NE Lincolnshire).   They went on a beach clean walk and helped out on a stall alongside volunteers from a local Scout group.

Today (June 8) there are loads of other events taking place all over the country to mark World Oceans Day – from beach and pier clean ups to film and community events to highlight ways in which we can all work to keep our oceans clean and support the health of ocean wildlife long into the future.
