The charity is very special to me as my husband Craig is a volunteer crew member and is on call 24/7.This years event will have Richardson's Amusements, various stalls, food, games and donkey rides and dance demonstrations from the Jemma Louise Academy and much more so please come along and support the charity that saves lives at sea".
