A team consisting of three generations of Abbey Alumnae completed a challenge to collect 130 pieces of plastic rubbish each from the beach next to our holiday accommodation in Thurlestone, Devon.

The team consisted of:

  • Evie (Upper II)
  • Gemma (her mother) - Abbey pupil 1981-1994
  • Clair Hodgson - Abbey pupil 1978-1992
  • Ann Thorne; staff member 1982-2005
  • Also helped by Alice (aged 8) and Emma (aged 6).

In total, we collected over 625 pieces of plastic rubbish from the beach and were very proud of our achievement.
