Great British Beach Clean!
Turn the tide on litter! Join us on Dunwich Heath beach to support the Marine Conservation Society's 26th Great British Beach Clean! Equipment provided but please bring your own gloves.
- Booking not needed
- Free event (admission applies)
Last year, around 7000 volunteers picked up a whopping 255,209 pieces of litter from the UK's beaches - that's 255,209 fewer wild sea birds and marine mammals injured or killed from swallowing rubbish or becoming entangled in the nation's litter. Please join us to help keep our beach a beautiful and safe place for everybody to enjoy and our coastal waters a safe habitat for our wildlife to thrive in!

What is Gift Aid?
Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.
Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:
- Gift Aid Admission
- Standard Admission
If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.
Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.
An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:
|Amount paid by visitor||£11.00||£10.00|
|Tax refund from Government*||£2.75||£0.00|
|Total received by the National Trust||£13.75||£10.00|
