Coffee morning raises £200 for Looe RNLI lifeboat station
Residents and staff at Hillcrest House, Looe, have donated £200, raised during a recent coffee morning, to Looe RNLI Lifeboat station
The wonderful residents and staff at Hillcrest House, Looe recently held a coffee morning and asked for the money they raised to be donated to Looe Lifeboat Station. Last Monday, 10 February 2020, Carol Foster, a member of our visits team, meet some of the residents and received an amazing donation of £200 from Jennifer Chudleigh, Cicely Runnals, Moreen Frier and staff member Sandra Jones.
Jennifer has a long association with Looe Lifeboat Station as her son Robert was on the boat crew for several years and her nephew James was also on the boat crew and now volunteers as shore crew.
Our volunteer crew and fundraising team thank all the residents and staff at Hillcrest for this donation, which will be used to enable our crew to continue saving lives at sea.
