August Open Day

With more than a thousand visitors on the day and more than £500 in donations collected, RNLI Salcombe Lifeboats can certainly claim to have had another amazing Open Day on Wednesday 15th August.
Two lifeboat enthusiasts from Yorkshire, brothers George (7) and Toby (5) Morrell on holiday in Salcombe, decided to spend their day selling homemade scones and in doing so raised more than £80. However, this meant they missed out on the tour of the lifeboats, rectified of course by Coxswain Chris Winzar and Mechanic Sam Viles who gave them a ‘peek’ when George and Toby came to the lifeboat station with their amazing donation.
A massive thanks to all who made it a rather special day, included in that, the many members of our volunteer crew who gave their time – becoming ‘tour guides’ for a day.
