Aura CDT student committee organises beach clean

13 June 2022

On 1st May 2022, eleven students from the Aura CDT undertook a beach clean-up in the area between Hornsea and Mappleton, removing 41kg of rubbish from the beaches and cliffs there, before travelling to Hornsea for fish and chips and a game of frisbee.

This trip was organised by the Aura CDT student committee, who wanted to get involved in tangible charity and volunteering activities in the local community. It is our hope that we can do more things like this in the future.

It was made possible by Jane and Paul from Plastic Free Hornsea, a volunteer organisation who regularly complete beach clean-ups in the Hornsea area, who kindly lent and transported litter picking equipment and advice to the Aura CDT students. Anyone who wants to lend their equipment in future is invited to message them on Facebook.

The Aura CDT Student Committee exists to give students a voice in the running of the CDT, as well as improving communicating between the student cohorts. The committee comprises elected members drawn from all Aura CDT cohorts, which meets fortnightly to discuss current and future operations. There are representatives with a number of defined roles, including Social Rep, Charity Rep, Community Outreach Rep and Education & Engagement Rep. Committee members work together to organise social and charitable events that fit with student interests and priorities, like this beach clean.
