New Fundraising Chairperson Jon Morgan

After many years of visiting Salcombe Jon is now a full-time resident. At a recent and extremely well attended Kick Start meeting, Jon said, “I am keen to push ahead the many activities cut short by the Pandemic and more. The Lifeboat is an integral part of our town, crewed by locals from all walks of life and it is incumbent on us all to support them in their quest to Save Lives at Sea.”

As with many other charities the Fundraising Crew urgently need supporters to help promote and join in the activities we have planned for this coming year during both summer and winter periods.

Members of our Fundraising Crew meet for a coffee every Wednesday at the Fortescue Inn, Salcombe (10:30 a.m.), please feel free to come chat with us, maybe you have ideas you would like to share with us and hopefully help us to help others.

For more information, please feel free to contact us at - Salcombe[email protected].
