The Nottingham Building Society Skegness branch has teamed up with the Skegness RNLI to raise awareness of water safety and support fundraising campaigns.
Staff at the branch started with the RNLI’s Mayday campaign, an annual fundraising event helping the charity’s volunteer lifeboat crew members continue to provide vital 24/7 life-saving rescue service around the coasts of the UK and Ireland.
The public were asked to show their support by donating, fundraising, volunteering and on social media and by purchasing a yellow welly pin badge.
Yellow wellies are an essential piece of RNLI crew kit as they give crew members protection, warmth and, importantly, grip when they’re out in rough seas. Yellow wellies have become an iconic symbol for the lifesaving charity.
Branch manager Adam Moore said: “It’s great to be able to support the RNLI, so many people depend on them every day to keep our waters safe. We look forward to supporting them throughout 2015 and raise awareness of water safety in our local community.”
