Club Chairman David Hedges presents cheque to Carl Pocock
Members of the Eastbourne Model Power Boat Club showed their continued support for Eastbourne lifeboats when they presented a cheque for £705 to Operations Manager Carl Pocock on Sunday
The group have been actively supporting Eastbourne Lifeboats for a number of years raising funds in various ways from members’ donations to selling homemade cakes at their various events. This current donation also includes money received at a recent auction where member’s model boats were sold. The group were entertained at the all-weather lifeboat station by Jill Scott-Taggart, Chair of the fundraising group with her legendry homemade cakes and scones. Carl, whilst thanking the group on behalf of the RNLI, said the money would go towards specialist equipment for new crew members.
