RNLI Summer Fete a big success!
Despite a change of venue this year the summer fete proved to be a great success with over £3000 raised on a fine late August Saturday morning.
The fine bright sunshine brought a good crowd of people to the fete who in just a few hours gave their generous support to the local charity. We would like to thank the owners of the new venue who lent us their garden for the fundraising venture. Siri Young, RNLI Fundraising Chairman said ‘Many thanks to all who helped set up and run the various stalls and to the following businesses who supported us with raffle prizes: Brittany Ferries, Wightlink, Meadow Farm Nursery, Sinah Warren Hotel, Langstone Quays Resort, Funlands, Paultons Park and Heidi’s Patisserie. The final total raised was £3066.38 which is a magnificent effort and will be used to support the lifesaving work of the Hayling RNLI Lifeboat Station.’
