Civic volunteer group Hout Bay Harbour Cleanup will host a swim to raise awareness about ocean pollution on Sunday.
Founder James Wrey explains that volunteers Laura Paarman and Bernie Manzoni will swim across Hout Bay from the Bronze Leopard to Mariner's Wharf.
Wrey says the event aims to encourage the public to do their part in keeping the ocean clean and plastic-free.
The aim is to inspire people to have an open heart to volunteer with any groups that are dealing with ocean pollution.— James Wrey, Hout Bay Harbour Cleanup captain and founder
