Saltash RNLI Share our Soup to raise funds
On Friday 25th January the Saltash RNLI Fundraising Committee held their annual SOS (Share our Soup) day at Saltash Sailing Club.
The volunteer fundraisers served up a choice of four home-made soups to hungry diners, raising a total of £528 for the lifesaving charity.
Angela Payne-Hanlon, Chair of Saltash RNLI Fundraising Committee said;
‘It was a fantastic turnout. The soups are all made and served by the volunteers on the committee. Its an annual event we all enjoy and we’re delighted to have raised so much. As usual its our broccoli and stilton soup that is the favourite. A big thanks to everyone who turned out to make it such a success.’
