Members of an Eastbourne boat-modelling group showed their continued support for Eastbourne lifeboats at the weekend when they donated more than £700 to the organisation.
The cheque for £705 was presented to operations manager Carl Pocock by members of Eastbourne Model Power Boat Club on Sunday.
The money was raised at a recent auction of members’ model boats and was one of many donations made by the group to the lifeboat crew over the last few years, a spokesperson said.
The event at the all-weather lifeboat station had cakes and scones baked by Jill Scott-Taggart. Money will go towards specialist equipment for new crew members, according to a spokesperson for Eastbourne Lifeboats.
