Hornsea’s very own Independent Lifeboat, Flood Rescue and Watersafe Education Organisation has received a much-appreciated boost to its funds courtesy of the Mountain Warehouse shop at Hornsea Freeport.
Manager, Alistair Howie explained, “Each branch of Mountain Warehouse are promoting the sale of charity bags and the individual branch can decide which charity to donate 100% of the profits to. We at Hornsea decided to donate the money to a local charity and chose Hornsea Inshore Rescue. The promotion is proving a success with our customers and to date we have sold in excess of 250.
The bags retail at £1.99 each with £1 from each sale going to the chosen charity.”
Hornsea Rescue Coxswain Paul Jebson expressed the charity’s appreciation saying, “We are delighted to have been chosen as beneficiaries of such a community centred initiative which will help provide much-needed funds enabling us to continue developing our life-saving organisation.”
Hornsea Inshore Rescue is situated at the southern end of Hornsea promenade. It is a totally independent organisation run entirely by volunteers and receives no government nor RNLI funding. It is not part of the RNLI.
Visitors to Hornsea Inshore Rescue and volunteers are always welcome whether they would like to serve as crew (comprehensive training is given), fundraisers or general helpers. Anyone interested is welcome to phone Sue on 07796 257989 or Ian on 01964 534302
