On behalf of the Spalding Branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, I would like to thank shoppers for their generous support of our charity by contributing to our collection in Spalding town centre on Saturday.
We are delighted that we managed to raise £436 for the RNLI, £48 more than last year, which was a pleasant surprise in these financially difficult times.
The money raised will help the RNLI in our region maintain their rescue services and save lives at sea.
The RNLI also provide lifeguard cover at many beaches around our coast as well as having rescue crews available to help flood victims inland, such as those in the storms last winter.
RNLI Hon Treasurer Spalding Branch
