CAMRA donate to Teignmouth RNLI
The Teignmouth RNLI station was the recipient of a generous donation from the local branch of the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).
CAMRA held a Beer and Cider Festival at the local Teignmouth Rugby Football Club and donated £575 to the Teignmouth station. Barrie Behenna, representative of the fundraising team said ‘we thank CAMRA immensely for their magnificent donation and look forward to working with them again in the future’.
Dave Buckler, organiser of the South Devon CAMRA Sunshine beer and cider festival added ‘it was a pleasure to support Teignmouth RNLI at our festival. We are extremely proud of the work they do to help support our coastal community.’
