Sea Scouts raise “a bob or two” for Shoreham RNLI lifeboat appeal
Members of the 3rd Shoreham Sea Scouts set to work doing a “bob a job” week for family and friends and raised £275 for the RNLI Shoreham Lifeboat Station Appeal.
The cub scouts from the pack, based at the Les Goodbody Centre on the riverbank next to Adur Recreation Ground, were given cardboard RNLI collection boxes in the shape of lifeboats to assemble and colour in. Their mission was then to fill them with money they had earned for doing jobs for their families and friends. They also completed tasks on sea safety through the RNLI education package.
Shoreham RNLI lifeboat second coxswain Charlie Hubbard went along to the pack where he accepted a cheque from the hard-working cub scouts. The RNLI launched a £1M community appeal in 2007 to raise money for a new modern, purpose built lifeboat station at Shoreham and to house a state-of-the-art new Tamar-class lifeboat. The building of the new lifeboat station on Kingston Beach is now well advanced.
