Work was rubbish for KCOM’s People Team this week when they took to the shores at Paull, near Hull, to help with a beach clean.

Seventeen volunteers took part in the event on Thursday when they were challenged to help clean a 100m stretch of the rocky Paull beach as part of an initiative working alongside the Marine Conservation Society.

Chief People Officer at KCOM, Kenneth Ross said: “It’s been a brilliant but also an incredibly eye-opening day to learn just how much rubbish we throw away, pump into the sea and pollute our world with.”

Mary Last, Senior People Partner at KCOM, said: "I feel very lucky to be able to dedicate 2 days every year to volunteering and giving back to the community."

It was a great day out in the fresh air with our team and so interesting to find out about how all the hard work the Conservation society does to clean up our beaches and surrounding areas. I would recommend this fun and educational activity to anyone looking to make a difference in just a few hours!
