Eight enthusiastic junior cyclists raise in excess of £1100.00 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution!
The 8th November 2014 was an eventful day for 8 young members of the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church.
This was the day that the ‘Cycle to Save’ sponsored bike ride event to raise necessary funds to support the RNLI, was carried out. The young Cyclists had enjoyed organising the event and equally enjoyed completing 8 laps of Norman Park which is situated in Bromley, Kent.
The event successfully raised £1120.00 for the RNLI and was presented to the Dungeness Lifeboat Station Volunteers on 10th January 2015. The visit to the Dungeness Lifeboat Station was very informative, including a talk by Dungeness RNLI lifeboat coxswain, Stuart Adams, a tour of the station and its new Shannon class lifeboat The Morrell.
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. The volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland from 236 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree.
