Cheque from the CSPF presented to the RNLI

The money from the dinner in March is presented to the RNLI.

The RNLI are our saftey net when we are out in the Channel.  They will always come to our aid if called, and have done so on numerous occasions.

Memebrs of the CS&PF were lucky enough to be invited to the weekly training session at the RNLI lifeboat station at the Dover Marina to have tour of their station, and their stunning Severn Class lifeboat.

We had the great pleasure of presenting the RNLI crew with a cheque for over £3,000, whcih was the money raised by the raffle at the dinner in March, along with the CS&PF doubling the donations.
