Environmental Award

Winner: Toni Dowrick

It’s fair to say Pirate FM was inundated with nominations for this year’s eco champion; a lady who heads to her local beach pretty much every day just to keep it clean. That includes a giant piece of litter that plagued Pentewan for three years.

The so-called plastic sea monster is now gone – thanks to Toni Dowrick.

When she’s not carrying bag-loads of waste off the beach, Toni’s on social media encouraging others to do the same. All this as a single mum to four children and after several operations to beat breast cancer.
