After the boating season, Gambrinus is helping clean Vltava. Come and help as well! (Translation)

8 September 2010

 

Plzeň, September 7, 2010 - The boating season is over and the riverbanks are still full of reminders of great parties. That is why Gambrinus decided to support an event called Cleaning Vltava. It will take place on September 11th at 9:00 am and is organised by Sdružení pro Vltavu (Coalition for Vltava) in cooperation with Povodí Vltava, s.p., ČSOP and the foundation Nadačním fondem Veolia on Vltava. Anybody can participate. The meeting place is in the morning in Nové Spolí. All participants can look forward not only to rewarding work, but also to Gambrinus beer, refreshments and entertainment. Cleaning Vltava will take place in the most-used area of the Vltava River, at Vyšší Brod do Boršova.

The entire area of the Vltava River which was chosen for cleaning will be divided into seven parts. Gambrinus will send out two rafts with crews which will be in charge of cleaning the river in the area around Český Krumlov. All participants in the event can look forward to entertainment prepared by Gambrinus. On Saturday evening, the campground at Spolí by Český Krumlov will have live music, and two attractions by G-City will be also providing entertainment. The programme isn't only for participants of the Cleaning Vltava event, but also for the general public, and all fans of water and boating.

"This year, Gambrinus introduced the Summer on Vltava event, which provided entertainment to all those boating on the river. And since we realise that it is important to take care of nature, not just to have fun, we decided to take part in the Cleaning Vltava event. We hope that people, and especially water lovers, will hear this challenge. As usual, they will also have fun with Gambrinus and as a reward they will receive free Gambrinus beer," stated František Korál, Manager of Plzeňský Prazdroj.

All collected waste will be placed in containers, which will be emptied by the management of the camp site, the municipalities through which Vltava runs, and Povodí Vltavy, s.p.
