Jim Lockey, a Project Worker at Dolphin Lodge, arranged for residents to take part to help them stay active and engaged while lockdown measures were in place.

Equipped with gloves and masks, they have been joining their local community litter picking group, ‘Litter Picking Watch’, and helping to keep the beach and surrounding countryside free of litter.

Kathrin Davis, Deputy Local Service Manager, said: “Our residents really enjoy it. It benefits the local community and it’s a great way for residents to exercise, meet new people in the group and enjoy the outdoors.”

Dolphin Lodge provides accommodation and support for adults with a range of mental health needs.
