Jodie McAneaney, Live Here Love Here Manager at Keep Northern Ireland Beautiful, said: “Coca-Cola Clean Coasts Week is growing from strength to strength and we’re excited to see how many volunteers will support us this year.

“Our aim is to create a clean coasts community who will continue to look after and enjoy our shores throughout the year and encourage others to do the same.

“Northern Ireland has some of the most beautiful shores in the world and we should be proud to protect and preserve them as well as taking advantage of the wonderful sports and hobbies organised around them by local communities.”
