Over the recent school holidays, students from APA Stageworks dance group have been collecting rubbish dumped at Yanchep Beach foreshore.
Dance troupe principal, Tammy Rafferty said: “I met with Clare Sharp from the ‘Save Our Oceans Yanchep’ a couple of weeks ago after seeing some of her posts, when I discovered that Clare does this beach clean on her own.
“I walked with her and covered just over 7km collecting six heavy bags full of all sorts of rubbish including a chair, lighters, balloons, endless amounts of rope and fishing line and so much small broken plastic, I was shocked.
“Afterwards I offered to help the following week and promised to bring along some volunteers to give Clare a break as she has badly injured her back.
“I met with three of the mums from the dance school and ten of the kids and we set off to Yanchep Beach. It took us three and half hours to cover the 7km stretch of beach. We collected 10 bags of rubbish.”
Well done to the APA family: Helen, Emily, Sophie, Lauren, Logan, Caitlin, Lily, Henry, George, Phoebe, Izzy, Chloe and little toddler, Tommy.
