Fundraiser celebrates 20 years with RNLI
Last week saw the fundraising Chairperson Roberta Duncan receive a medal from the RNLI for 20 years service
Roberta first got involved with the RNLI when she worked in the local council offices and 2 of her colleagues were involved and asked her if she would like to join them. That was her hooked!
During her 20 years she has had a few jobs from Souvenirs secretary, Box secretary, Treasurer, to Vice chairperson to her current post Chairperson.
Roberta said this week “I enjoy my time as a fundraiser, meeting people at various fundraising activities and the committee are a great supportive group. I feel very surprised and privileged to receive my award. It has been a quick 20 enjoyable years”.
Well done Roberta. Thank you very much for your commitment and time to the RNLI.
