Eyemouth RNLI receives two community donations in one week
Eyemouth RNLI Lifeboat Station is delighted to receive two generous donations this week.
On Thursday 3 November representatives from Eyemouth RNLI crew and fundraising group were presented with a cheque for £625 from David Dempster, the main organiser of the 10th Eyemouth Twilight 5k Run. The money raised is donated to different local groups each time, and this year also included a contribution from the Eyemouth League of Friends.
The Eyemouth Co-operative store chose both Eyemouth Lifeboat Station and the RNLI Lifeguards at Coldingham as recipients of the Co-op Community Fund.
On Saturday 5 November crew and management from Eyemouth RNLI Lifeboat Station were presented with a cheque for £1,735 from the Co-op Member Pioneer, Catherine Goldsmith. Both lifeboats were out on exercise and came into Eyemouth bay as a thank you.
Local support is especially appreciated, the RNLI is funded entirely by donations, helping us provide a 24/7 search and rescue service.
