Father Christmas gives cheque to New Brighton Lifeboat crew
The New Brighton RNLI volunteer crew were given an early Christmas present by Father Christmas and his helpers at the Coffee Roast Vale Park today!

For the month of November, RNLI New Brighton was the chosen charity for the shop and the staff have been collecting donations throughout the month.

New Brighton lifeboat crew would like to thank everyone at the Coffee Roast for choosing the RNLI as their Charity and would like to give an extra special mention to everyone who has donated, especially in these difficult times. Your generosity does not go unnoticed and the amazing amount of £614 raised over the month will go to help support training and equipment for New Brighton Lifeboat.

Mark Harding, Helm, New Brighton Lifeboat said, ‘On behalf of all the crew at the station we would like to thank you for supporting your local lifeboat station. This has been a difficult year in terms of fundraising due to the pandemic, which makes the total amount raised all the more impressive’.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas to you all!
