As part of our commitment to preserving the natural beauty and health of our waterways, we invite not just the competitors but anyone who wishes to undertake one to as many shoreline cleanups. It is said that if nothing is done, rubbish found at sea could treble by 2025.

If you choose to undertake a cleanup and complete the form, your efforts will be duly recorded and added to the Spirit Of Angling sustainability initiative. In less than four years and with over 5,000 worldwide cleanups undertaken by Angling Spirit participants, Spirit Of Angling has caught the attention of many organisations including the European Commission, DEFRA and EFFTA.

As action speaks louder than words, thank you in advance for taking your family and friends along and making your cleanup a fun & gratifying event.
