Teignmouth RNLI Fundraising Team are currently collecting unwanted boating, fishing and other maritime bits and pieces for their Boat Jumble stall at the Racecourse on 26 May. Of course they would be glad to see you there, or if you have any forgotten items hidden away in your shed or garage that they can sell, please let them know. They can collect – just give Roger a call on 01626 777799.
The RNLI is currently running Mayday, its yellow-themed annual fundraiser, which runs from 1-31 May. It’s a celebration of their volunteer lifeboat crews, who are on call 24 hours a day, every day, to save lives at sea. This year, the RNLI wants to raise £750,000 to fund the vital kit that will keep their crews safe, whatever the weather throws at them. Items like boots and helmets may not sound like big-ticket stuff on their own, but every item is vitally needed for safety and every little helps.
