Clients of the Phoenix Centre in Rothesay headed to one of Bute’s most popular beaches this week to take part in a clean-up with local charity Beachwatch Bute.

The Phoenix Centre, a day service for adults on Bute with additional support needs, has been a long-time supporter of Beachwatch’s ongoing campaign to clean up the island, and clients and staff met the charity’s ranger Sandra MacMillan at Ettrick Bay on Thursday before spending two hours clearing litter from the shore.

The Phoenix Centre is just one of several local organisations to have taken part in clean-ups with Beachwatch in recent days – others include the Rotary Club of Rothesay, featured on this site on June 14, and Rothesay Primary School.
