Fundraiser and lifeboat Crew collect over £1,500 from generous weekend of bucket collections for Skegness RNLI
Last Friday and Saturday saw both Crew and dedicated Skegness RNLI supporters stand at The Hildreds Shopping Centre entrances and collect generous donations from residents and visitors to the town.
The total collected was a whopping £1,648.29 and is a tremendous contribution to the charity that depends on donations from the public to fund its maritime lifesaving work.
The Hildreds Centre has been a great friend to Skegness RNLI over many years and allowing these collections on the premises is an enormous help to the local fundraising effort.
Skegness RNLI Treasure April Chapman says these opportunities are really very welcomed: 'Everyone at the station really does appreciate the support we get from the Hildreds centre. They help us raise thousands of pounds every year to save lives at sea off the Lincolnshire coast.
The next date for collections at The Hildreds Centre are Friday the 8th and Saturday the 9th April, we'd love to meet you and say hi!
