RIDDING the world's oceans of plastic waste is now a cause with more cash thanks a group of children from Rodborough and their farmers' market stall.

Visitors to Cornhill Market Place in Stroud on Saturday were able to buy a whole host of second-hand items like toys and books that the children were selling to raise money for The Ocean Clean-Up.

The non-profit develops new technologies for getting rid of plastics from the sea, including the giant floating barrier off the coast of San Francisco - and it now has an extra £473 for its cause thanks to the team.

Ahead of Saturday, the children had been designing posters for the day and even delivered a presentation to the rest of their class at Rodborough Community Primary School.

Boosting the children's fundraising was an interview they gave with BBC Radio Glos on Friday - some listeners came specifically to their stall after hearing the show.

One parent, Miriam Lewis, said: "It was truly a great day and a great team effort.

"We are very proud of them all!"
