Lizard Lifeboat Big Breakfast

During the morning 180 BIG Cornish breakfasts were cooked and served by members of the stations fund raising committee and a team of volunteer helpers. Now in its fifth year the annual event was again hailed as another resounding success raising over £1000 for The Lizard Lifeboat.

Birthday greetings were paid during the morning to volunteer fundraiser Rachel Tonkin who was celebrating her 80th birthday. Rachel has been fundraising for The Lizard Lifeboat for nearly 40 years and was presented with a rose plant aptly named “Rachel” by Lizard Lifeboat Chairman Dr Chris Cuff.

Thank you to everyone who came and enjoyed their breakfast in aid of the lifeboat, and much appreciation to the team of extra volunteer helpers who worked tirelessly throughout the morning. Sincere thanks also to Sainsbury’s Helston for their generous donation of butter and fresh bread for the event.
