Friday, 2nd September - Lifeboat appeal

A former colleague took off to Australia a few years ago and he was back in the old country, so last night we met up so he could show off his tan and his weird new accent.

It was great to see him, and just by chance we ended up in the restaurant where we held his leaving do! The restaurant was Loch Fyne in Beaconsfield who had a collection tin for their chosen charity which was the Lifeboat Appeal.

We are pleased to announce the launch of a special partnership with the RNLI. We aim to raise enough money through our charity appeal to build a 'Loch Fyne' lifeboat - an Atlantic 85 rib complete with the latest GPS system.

Last year the RNLI lifeboats made over 8,000 rescues (the RNLI lifeguards assisted a further 10,000 people). There are 232 lifeboat stations around the UK - all run purely through voluntary donations and legacies and manned, in the main, by volunteer lifeboat men and women
