On and cold January morning a good number of supporters joined us at the Hayling Island RNLI Lifeboat Station, had fun, sampled our streaky bacon butties and generously supported the RNLI SOS Day.

A warm welcome was given to the group on January 29th, who saw the D-class inshore and Atlantic 85 lifeboats driven in their carriages across the beach to launch and perform manoeuvres in the harbour, including rescuing volunteer crew member Becky Brunton in a Man Overboard Drill. Becky said ‘It wasn’t as cold as I thought it would be!’

From the sale of cakes, bacon butties and souvenirs, plus donations, £325 was raised. In addition the Slipper Sailing Club at Emsworth donated £545 from their recent pantomime, to give a magnificent total of £871 for the day. Our grateful thanks go to all who supported us in these events.
