Oliver draws on his talents to raise more than £800 for Eastbourne RNLI
Twelve year old Eastbourne resident Oliver, who loves to draw pictures of boats and has painted a wonderful picture of Eastbourne RNLI's All weather Tamar class lifeboat 'Diamond Jubilee' has raised more than £800 to save lives at sea.
A local company, Custard Print and Design, generously printed 80 packs of ten postcards free of charge that Oliver has then sold to raise vital funds for the station.
Custard Print and Design, owners of Bournefree News and Magazine have now printed another 50 packs for Oliver so that he can continue his fantastic fundraising work.
Oliver has also drawn other RNLI Lifeboats including the Swanage lifeboat and the Mumble Lifeboat. He also has a gallery of his artwork on the Sovereign Harbour Residents Association website where you can see all his drawings: www.shra.co.uk under the galleries page.
