Pembrokeshire underwater cleaning team to make a splash on The One Show
2:30pm Friday 27th September 2013 in News
The volunteers of Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners are to have their work recognised on a national level with the BBC’s The One Show tonight (Friday).
Following filming this summer, the diving volunteers can be seen tonight (September 27) on primetime TV, providing the perfect opportunity to educate the UK public about the dangers of marine litter.
Neptune’s Army of Rubbish Cleaners carries out several volunteer dives around the Welsh coastline setting trapped wildlife free and collecting all marine litter from fishing tackle to the kitchen sink.
Davey Jones, a volunteer for the group, said: “The UK is blessed with some stunning coastline which we all love to enjoy. "Protecting its beauty and maintaining it is our responsibility and also fundamental to our future. Marine litter is sadly out of sight, out of mind but this should not be the case at all. "The opportunity to appear on the BBC means we can educate a UK wide audience about the perils of marine litter and showcase what we as volunteers are busy doing in Pembrokeshire, Wales. As a voluntary group relying solely on donations, it is recognition and profile like this that makes all the difference to raising awareness of our work and also emphasising the importance of everyone doing their bit.”
The diving group, known commonly as NARC, will appear tonight on BBC One’s The One Show at 7pm. The programme is likely to be available on BBC iplayer following broadcast.
