Doing our bit to help the environment

Huge thanks to the team of CJ Thorne staff and their families who volunteered, at the weekend, to participate in the 2019 Great British Beach Clean, organised by the Marine Conservation Society. The lovely weather was a great help, down on Seaford Beach, but ultimately, whatever the weather had in store, the Thorne volunteers were ready to roll up their sleeves, as a business from the local community, and take a share in the responsibility to help look after our environment. Associate Director Alan Skipper said “We were pleasantly surprised to find the beach in a clean condition. It was refreshing to learn that the local community regularly volunteer their time to keep the beach clean! But still our efforts collected 2 bags of rubbish which included the normal culprits of small plastics, cigarette butts and fishing lines.” It’s a timely reminder for us all to take our rubbish home and recycle it!
