Description

Fittingly on the environmental day 'Earth Hour' - Donalds Volvo Ipswich are hosting a family day for children and adults alike, to learn about the effects of plastics in our seas and oceans. The day will be split between a relaxed and informative presentation at our new state-of-the-art showroom at Futura Park in Ipswich, followed by a public reading of Volvo's new children's book 'The Day The Ocean Went Away'. The story is about a little boy called Jack, who loves the ocean and wakes up one morning to discover that it has completely disappeared. He journeys across the dry seabed to find out why, meeting all sorts of beleaguered ocean creatures along the way; from a plastic bag filled blue whale to a mermaid caught up in plastic fishing nets. Jack soon discovers why the ocean might want to disappear..

We will then depart in a convoy of Volvo's to a local coastline to conduct our very own beach clean. The day will be child-friendly to encourage the next generation to love our oceans and to learn what they can do to help.

Agenda:

  • - Welcome and refreshments at Donalds Volvo
  • - Family-friendly presentation on what is happening and what can we do
  • - Public reading of 'The Day The Ocean Went Away' and a complimentary copy of the book to each family with children*
  • - Briefing for the beach clean and beach combing
  • - Convoy of Volvo's to local beach
  • - Beach Clean
  • - Refreshments on the beach
  • - Depart back to Donalds Ipswich
*We will present each family with children with one complimentary copy of the book. Subject to availability.

You only require one ticket per family but please inform us in advance if you require transport to and from the beach.
