Weston-super-Mare RNLI Crew presented with a cheque for £400 by The Men’s Group

The volunteer RNLI crew were also challenged to a game of skittles at the Hornet’s Rugby Clubhouse in Hutton Moor on Tuesday 27 November.

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea and relies on fund raising through a variety of events along with legacy donations and the great work done by the fundraising branches around the UK.

The Men’s Group is a social club which meets once a month and is organised through the Clarence Park Baptist Church. The club has twenty-five members and has been running for five years. It has members from different walks of life and age ranges who enjoy attending a variety of social events together.

In addition to the challenge of skittles, the club also provided a buffet to the members and crew which was gratefully received.

Chairman of The Men’s Group, Alan Loveridge said: ‘We were delighted that the RNLI crew accepted our challenge to a game of skittles and we all had an enjoyable evening together socializing. We are grateful to the Hornets Rugby Club who arranged the use of the skittles alley for the event’.

The cheque for £400 was gratefully received on behalf of the RNLI by Boat House Manager of the Weston station, Richard Spindler MBE. He said: ‘We are extremely thankful to The Men’s Group for the generosity in choosing the Weston RNLI as its charity for 2018 and donating these funds that help us to continue to save lives at sea’.
