'The Day The Ocean Went Away' Event - Donalds Volvo Ipswich

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.
