Hi all! My name is Oly Rush.
I have an overwhelming urge to do all I can to protect the environment and all creatures who call it their home. I’m an ocean advocate and I started up the Instagram page _projectplanet_ to share images from our beach cleans, as well as to raise awareness about the devastating effect litter and plastic pollution has on our oceans. This platform has introduced me to many like-minded people who I have become friends with!
Two organisations I work with closely are Clean Jurassic Coast and Gopladdle. Both of these groups work incredibly hard and are in need of money for essential equipment to enable them to carry out the work they do.
In order to raise money myself and Roy (Clean Jurassic Coast ) have decided to swim the length of the Jurassic Coast this August, all 96 miles of it. It stretches from Exmouth in East Devon to Studland Bay in Dorset.
Roy is a kayaker with plenty of swim support experience and I am a keen swimmer. Make no mistake though, this is a huge challenge and is going to require a monumental effort from all parties involved!
Please, please share this far and wide and if you can donate, however small the amount, it will make a huge difference. Every penny raised will go towards cleaning our beaches, preventing litter from reaching the ocean in the first place and help resolve the many other environmental issues our planet faces.
Check out cleanjurassiccoast.uk and Gopladdle.com we need to look after this planet, it’s the only one we have.
❤ Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, I’m off swimming 😁

About the fundraiser
From an early age I trained as a competitive swimmer and from this, my love for water began. All this time spent on the coast and in the sea has opened my eyes to the the environmental impact the human race has had on the earth. I now spend my time doing something about it!
