Young girl guides from Seaford were inspired to raise money for the Newhaven RNLI and presented a cheque to the crew recently.
The Second Seaford Guides, who meet at St Leonard’s Church Hall in Seaford on Wednesday evenings, set about organising a beetle drive and raised £150 in aid of RNLI Newhaven in support of the volunteer lifeboat crew.
The cheque was presented at Newhaven Lifeboat House, where the girls were able to meet some of the crew members and have a close view of the lifeboat itself.
The cheque presentation followed a presentation of RNLI beach and water safety from visiting RNLI education officer Margaret Kimber.
Newhaven RNLI currently operates as an all-weather lifeboat station as part of the national charity to save lives at sea.
The station has lots of history, with the original station being established in 1803 and taken over by the RNLI in 1854.
