Dungeness RNLI lifeboat crew and supporters wash 135 cars for the SOS appeal

UPDATE - Grand total collected by Dungeness Lifeboat Station for this Appeal £1,958

As the sun shone, on Saturday 30 January, 2010 our RNLI lifeboat men worked tirelessly all day to wash 135 cars and while they were busy outside, our fundraising committee were in the crew room serving refreshments and selling souvenirs in RNLI shop. Total raised so far is £1,300 with still more to come.

Coxswain Stuart Adams said " I was amazed at the amount of cars that came as Dungeness is such a remote area. This was a team effort from all of us at our lifeboat station and we would like to thank everyone who supported us during this RNLI's national SOS appeal event."

The RNLI's biggest annual fundraising campaign is 'SOS Day' and is the time when the RNLI sends its own mayday, SOS, call for the public support to help the RNLI's volunteer lifeboat crews and lifeguards save lives at sea.
