Barefoot Wine & Bubbly is calling for Brighton locals to com#e TOE-gether to Leave Only Footprints on Brighton Beach

Brighton locals will soon have nothing to ‘wine’ about as they are being called upon to come together on Sunday 16th July and clean Brighton Beach as part of the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project – an initiative that encourages the British public to Leave Only Footprints on the UK’s beaches. The initiative kicks off its tenth year running in the UK and members of the public are invited to come down and join the beach clean from 2pm onwards, with everyone welcome.

Adding a competitive element to the beach clean, a giant set of Barefoot Wine ‘Scales of Gra-TOE-tude’ will pop up on the beach, with the team that collects the largest amount of litter being awarded with a bottle of Barefoot Wine to toast their success. However, everyone will be a winner as not only will their local beach look FOOT-tastic, but all adult volunteers will be able to enjoy a glass of Barefoot Wine as a reward for their hard work.


Olga Senkina, Marketing Director EMEA at Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, commented:At Barefoot Wine our mission is to make the world a better place through wine and the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project is a great example of how we do this. We are very proud to have worked with 6,200 volunteers to collect 13 tonnes of litter from UK beaches over the last nine years. We are delighted to again encourage the Brighton community to come and help us clean their local beach and make the local area a better place for everyone to enjoy in the process. Of course, one of the day’s highlights is raising a toast with a glass of Barefoot Wine to celebrate the hard work of all the volunteers – cheers to that!”

The project will run across the country throughout the summer in partnership with environmental charity, Surfers Against Sewage (SAS), who, for the last 27 years, have worked tirelessly to protect the UK’s oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife. It’s a welcome return for the group, which will be working with the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project to help communities Leave Only Footprints on their local beaches.

Dom Ferris, Head of Community and Engagement at Surfers Against Sewage, said;Over the past decade it has never ceased to amaze us how incredible community spirit can be – something we see every year at the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project. We’ve already had loads of interest from local volunteers, so can’t wait to get down to Brighton Beach and work with Barefoot and the local community have a great time working towards our vision of plastic free coastlines.”

Those keen to get involved are invited to join the clean on Brighton Beach – with friends and family from 2pm on Sunday 16th July, and can also join the conversation and share their hard work and successes on Twitter using #LeaveOnlyFootprints. Members of the public can register their interest and ask the Surfers Against Sewage team any specific questions via email at beachcleans@sas.org.uk. To find out more visitwww.barefootwine.co.uk/blog
