Dig deep to save lighthouse stripes

IT IS great news that the Save the Stripes Appeal has been given £1,000 by the Duke of Devonshire’s Estate to help repaint Beachy Head Lighthouse, but that still leaves £10,000 to raise.

If you are a local business using the iconic red and white striped lighthouse as an image on your website, stationery or advertising I ask you to donate a sum - however small - to the campaign.

Apart from the warm glow you will feel to have helped such a worthy cause, you will also have saved yourself the expense of reprinting your stationery and redesigning your website and advertising when the lighthouse goes back to grey – as it certainly will if the money isn’t raised!

Dig deep and donate at Arlington Road Medical Practice, the Eastbourne Herald offices, PST Travel or at any NatWest Branch or via online banking payable to Eastbourne AM Rotary Club Lighthouse, sort code 524100, account number 40384616.
