I write to pass on the thanks of Spalding & District Branch of the RNLI to Sainsbury’s shoppers who generously donated a total of £280 to the charity on Saturday, August 10.
Such donations are vital to maintain the rescue service of the RNLI.
Those who donated money can be reassured that the money will be well spent on the service which carries out an average of 22 lifeboat rescues per day throughout the year.
It is estimated that 450 lives were saved at sea by our volunteer crews last year.
I would like to extend our thanks to the manager and staff of Sainsbury’s for their help and support.
Peter Warren, RNLI Hon Treasurer, Spalding branch
