The Rotary Club of Skegness showed their support for the RNLI in Skegness with a generous donation presented at the lifeboat station.

Club President Pat Lowe was joined by Andrew Quickfall, chairman of the club’s community and vocational committee, on the Lincolnshire Poacher lifeboat to present a cheque for £500 to station mechanic Mark Holley.

The money was raised through local fundraising activities and collections throughout the past year.

Pat and Andrew were thanked for the donation by Mark, who said: “The lifeboat crew and everyone involved at the station really do appreciate this support from the club. We know how difficult fundraising can be and we thank all Skegness Rotarians involved in raising this money.”

As a charity, the RNLI relies on voluntary donations to provide the life-saving lifeboat and lifeguard services around the coast of the UK and Republic of Ireland.
