On the 16th Of February, we pressed ahead with our planned Cornwall Wildlife Trust litter pick up community event despite Storm Dennis attempting to foil our attempts!
Following Emily’s talk, Coffee Lounge manager and Plastic Free St Ives committee member, Emma Fashokun talked about the blight of plastic cable ties in St Ives. All volunteers and children during half term were encouraged to pick these cable ties up and exchange them for a bar of Kernow Chocolate!
We also raised funds with a raffle and a lucky prize winner Jennie took home one of our designer St Ives tea towels. If you missed out you can get your tea towel here.
In conclusion we had some success despite the weathers best efforts! However, we will be holding another litter pick up soon. Watch this space, along with our sister company Cornish Gems we hope to raise more awareness and funds for this great local charity this year.
