Exmouth RNLI thanks its Sponsors for the event

The lifesavers are pleased to announce their Fireworks Display 2022 held at the Exmouth Rugby Club on the evening of Friday 4 November raised £13,845 and would like to thank all those who came along to enjoy the event and the many local businesses who gave it their support.

Louise Hockings-Thompson, Co-Ordinator of Exmouth RNLI Events Team said, ‘It really was a full station event planned by the Exmouth RNLI Events Team, but with volunteers from the RNLI Shop, Fundraising, Visits Guides, Crew and Sea Safety, it was amazing to see volunteers from all areas of the station helping on the night from marshalling to bucket collecting. I’d like to thank all of them who worked so hard to help.’

Exmouth RNLI Events Team Lead, Harry Griffin, said ‘We would like to thank Exmouth Rugby Club for allowing us to hire the ground, to Sonic Fireworks for an amazing display, and all of our wonderful sponsors - East Devon Air, Carter Dawes, GK Signs, Devon Contract Waste, Stage Engage, Simon Santucci Decorators, Hall & Scott, The Storage Guys, Copyrite, East Devon Automotive, Exewake, Action for Life, Krispies, Crossed Anchors and Exe-Lux without whom the evening would not have been so incredible.

Finally, to the wonderful people from Exmouth who supported the event, and all the people that travelled from far and wide to support our lifesaving charity – we hope you enjoyed the evening and truly appreciate all the support you gave us that made this event such a success.’

Monies raised at the event will go towards essential crew training at Exmouth RNLI Lifeboat Station.
