Seaton Carew school fundraiser for Hartlepool RNLI
A fantastic fundraiser held at Holy Trinity Church of England Primary School recently raised £68.75 for the Hartlepool RNLI.
Hartlepool RNLI deputy launch authority Bob Jackson whose daughter Summer attends the school said ‘I am very proud of Summer and her school friends for raising such an impressive amount of money’.
‘The children collected 5 pence pieces in ‘Betty Pots’ which are small glass jars and are available from the Ferry Road lifeboat station'.
'The money raised will go towards helping the volunteer crew members save lives at sea’.
Key facts about the RNLI
The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service around the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland coasts. The RNLI operates over 238 lifeboat stations in the UK and Ireland and, in a normal year, more than 240 lifeguard units on beaches around the UK and Channel Islands. The RNLI is independent of Coastguard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824, its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives.
