Ladies Lifeboat Guild Reach Fundraising Goal

lifeboat rnli flag and harbourThe Ladies Lifeboat Guild volunteers have achieved their 2012 targets of buying new lifejackets for the crew.

Their annual general meeting last week heard that the equipment has arrived.

Although many islanders feel that Scilly was quieter in 2012, the fundraisers still raised £7,926 in donations with an additional £8,586 from souvenir sales.

Volunteer Sarah Sibley says this year’s activities will include food sales on the quay on the Sunday of gig weekend.  There’ll also be a lifeboat open day, combined with a watersports event and raft face, on 23rd June.
