Polzeath Marine Conservation Group
... are very appreciated!!!
This page is dedicated to acknowledging and celebrating the wonderful businesses and individuals who support and have supported PMCG over the years. It can not be stated enough that without financial donations and fundraising, we would struggle to pay our rent, public liability insurance, legal fees and, of course, our projects.
Please read on and support our supporters where you can - without them, we might not exist!!
Please also note, that, the below is in alphabetical order.....
Atlantic Diving (in particular Chris Lowe) for helping us to continue the important marine life surveys which provide us with the opportunity to record vital data.
Bridge Bistro hosted a fundraising quiz for PMCG, proceeds went towards the general running of the Marine Centre.
Cornwall Council are one of our main supporters and rent out to us our Marine Centre, without which we would be unable to carry out our work.
Cornwall Wildlife Trust and Your Shore Beach Rangers for originally setting up the group and for delivering training to all our volunteers and beach rangers. http://www.cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk
Fusion for choosing PMCG to receive the 5p charge for carrier bags sold in 2017 and 2018.
Keep Britain Tidy BeachCare (especially Nick Pickles and Neil Hembrow) run school group trips to Polzeath (as well as other beaches), which the PMCG volunteers are able to support. These day trips out of the classroom are a brilliant way for all involved to learn, on location, about all things beach! http://www2.keepbritaintidy.org/Programmes/Beaches/Beachcare
