RNLI Penarth holding fundraising coffee morning to help save lives at sea
RNLI Penarth is holding a fundraising coffee morning in Penarth Yacht Club on Saturday 29 October from 10:30 to 12:00.
Tickets to the event will cost £1, with all funds raised going to help the lifesaving work of RNLI Penarth. As well as a selection of cakes available to buy, there will be a fundraising book sale on the morning.
Penarth’s lifeboat crew have responded to six callouts over the last month, which included assisting a vessel taking on water, going to the aid of people cut off by the tide, and taking part in a search for a missing person.
Sara Siddall, Secretary of RNLI Penarth Fundraising Committee, said:
“The coffee morning is always a popular event, and we’re looking forward to welcoming everybody on the day. It will be a great chance to get together and enjoy coffee and a chat, while supporting RNLI Penarth’s volunteer crew to continue saving lives at sea.”
