Quiz Prizes

Thank you to all who supported our quiz and mini auction on Friday 31 January, and as normal we are so grateful to all who came along and continue to help St Ives Lifeboat respond when the calls come in for help.

A great night was had by all and we can confirm that everyone's efforts generated a great total of £725.40.

With our crew busier than ever, every fundraising event is crucial.

A special thank you to The Western Hotel for hosting us, and a further thank you to The Loft Restaurant and Terrace, Kirsty Bridgewater, Academy and Co, The Painted Bird, Jo Downs Handmade Glass, Una St Ives, The Attic Cellar Treatment Rooms and St Ives Cakes and Bakes for supporting us with your donations for auction.

These fundraising events would not be possible without our volunteer fundraising team - thank you for all your hard work.
