The Live Here Love Here Coast Care Awards

13 September 2016

Calling all Coast Care Volunteers!

It is that time of year again when the Coast Care Awards open for applications!!!

Do you know a group or individual who deserves to be rewarded for all their hard work, keeping waterways beautiful? Now here’s your chance!

On the 13th October 2016, Live Here Love Here in association with Coca-Cola are running the Coast Care Awards for the seventh year running in Northern Ireland.  Through these awards we want to acknowledge the excellent work of individuals and groups involved in the Live Here Love Here Coast Care Programme which supports the work of volunteers who actively improve the appearance of our beautiful beaches, rivers and loughs.

We want to celebrate the success of groups working hard throughout the year, so if you work with or know a group that deserves an award for their work on a coastal or inland waterway project, we want to hear from you! Or maybe there is an individual who you think is so inspiring they deserve to be recognised for their contribution to protecting the Northern Ireland coastline or waterways then they could be in line for a prestigious Live Here Love Here Coca-Cola Coast Care Award.

Picture Perfect Award

There  is also a coastal and inland waterway photography competition supported by Tourism Northern Ireland. The image could be anything from the fun and colourful activities groups have engaged in during the Coast Care programme or celebrate the natural beauty of Northern Ireland's coastlines and inland waterways; so get snapping!
