Over a 1000 miles and counting.
‘Pedal for Appledore RNLI crew team’ has cycled well over 1000 miles during April to raise £2000 to go towards the operating costs of their own lifeboat station.
Despite most of the volunteer crew working full time, spending time training and attending emergency rescues at Appledore RNLI, and finding time for their families, they have still found time to cycle well over a 1000 miles during April in their ‘Pedal for Appledore RNLI’. As they continue to cycle, all they ask the public is that they please help them reach their £2000 target by sponsoring them at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/appledorernlicrewteam. All money raised goes towards the operating costs of Appledore RNLI.
Appledore RNLI would also like to thank all the other people who are taking part in their own ‘Pedal for Appledore RNLI’ and all those sponsoring them. The RNLI is a charity. The crew are volunteers. All the money within and spent by the charity is raised through legacies, donations and fundraising.
