St Dominic’s and Friends School in ‘Shared Education’ Clean-Up of Helen’s Bay Beach Saturday 23rd March

A 50 plus strong team of St Dominic’s Grammar and Friends School Lisburn students, their families, friends and teachers participated in a beach clean-up at Helen’s Bay, near Bangor on Saturday the 23rd March. In total they collected 20 bags of non-recyclable litter in red bags and 13 bags of recyclable materials; mainly plastic and aluminium was collected. This will be a boost for local wildlife as much plastic was removed from the seaweed, where animals mistake plastic for food and end up sick or die as a result of ingestion.
