Whitstable Easter draw and Mayday fair raise funds for RNLI
Whitstable Lifeboat station were unable to hold their usual Easter Fair for the 3rd year running so had to think of other way to raises funds and opted for an Easter Draw with tickets on sale from 1st March until the Bank Holiday Monday.
“In addition to support the RNLI annual fundraising promotion during the month of May we decided to support the national effort with a Mayday fair on the May Bank Holiday Monday (May 2nd )”.
“The volunteers turned out on a lovely Mayday morning and raised an amazing £720 together with a good day in the RNLI shop with raised a further £533. Thank you to all for your wonderful contribution towards saving lives at sea”.
