RNLI Visit

Small Change Tuesday donations have been collected recently in aid of the RNLI. We know all too well, with living so close to the coast, that the RNLI is a lifesaving service which operates purely on charitable donations. Ten children were delighted to visit the station which is located in the Marina, to hand over a cheque for £253. In return, three lifeboat volunteers were keen to give the group a guided tour of the station, including the experience of being on the boat. The children had many interesting questions for the crew and we learned such a lot. The fun part was soaking one of the crew, who was dressed in the kit, with a hose. This was to prove that the suits, which each cost £1000, were warm and waterproof. We will be supporting a new charity after Christmas.
