Eastbourne Post Office RNLI fundraiser is just the ticket
The Post Office on Seaside in Eastbourne is holding a raffle in aid of the RNLI with tickets available from August 23. The raffle will be drawn on August 28.
'We had been discussing holding a fundraiser with the staff and the RNLI immediately came to mind, especially this year when the beaches are likely to be busier than ever with people planning staycations, which could led to the RNLI's lifeboats being busier as well.' said Paul Money, postmaster at the Seaside Post Office.
