Lifeboat week

Swanage Lifeboat Week starts in two days time. This is an immense week for us. We do the vast majority of our fundraising over this week and also put a huge amount of effort into getting the lifeboat and its crew seen around the town to raise awareness of the institution and the work it does. This year there is more going on than ever (the latest additions are the Friday night music, bar and BBQ at P.A.G., the build a boat comp and the cream teas on the Saturday.

The programme for the entire week is below. Please come and support if you possibly can.

We'll be along next weekend, alas not able to enter the build a boat competition this year, but definitely will be supporting enthusiastically. The kids, (and me truth be told) are very much looking forward to a ride on the J Reginald Corah...... Look forward to meeting you at some point next weekend as well.

Regards, Mark.
