Thanet RNLI Fundraising Group has held its first Margate street collection for many years.
‘Lifeboat Day’ as it used to be called was always an annual feature of Thanet’s summer events programme in Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate. It hasn’t taken place in Margate in recent years but made a welcome return to the town on Saturday 31 July.
The charity’s fundraisers reported very positive comments from a generous public. The money donated will go directly to saving life at sea.
Thanet’s RNLI fundraisers pass on their sincere thanks to those who donated to the cause with special thanks to the collectors who gave their time including the RNLI Face 2 Face Team, the souvenir shop staff at Margate lifeboat station and RNLI Community Manager Nathan Tough.
There was special thanks also to Margate Sea Cadets who joined in to help make the day so successful and to Stormy Sam who made time in his busy schedule to join in the collection which amounted to £558.83.
