Money raised for Horton and Port Eynon RNLI at local fete

Lifeboats News Release

A fantastic £100 was raised by six enterprising girls at the Pennard Fete, Gower, for the Horton and Port Eynon RNLI Lifeboat Station

Lara Rees, Sophie Beynon, Amy Beynon, Lauren Arnold, Caitlin Arnold and Madeline Avery raised the money by running a stall at the fete. At the stall, visitors could take part in various games including a Minions ball game. The girls also sold cakes, biscuits and tie-dye bags. 

They recently visited the lifeboat station to present the cheque. 
 
Lawrie Grove, Lifeboat Operations Manager at Horton and Port Eynon RNLI Lifeboat Station, said: ‘We are extremely grateful to the girls for giving up their time and raising the money for the Horton and Port Eynon Lifeboat Station on what was a wet day.’
