Exmouth RNLI station tour ends with donation thanks

Exmouth RNLI gave a tour of the lifeboat station to the Exeter Tangent Club as part of a UK-wide campaign to boost the sea safety charity’s funds for lifeguards.

Tricia Blackburn, chairman of the Exeter Tangent Club, presented Exmouth RNLI with a donation of £100 and thanked volunteers for their hospitality.

Tangent Clubs, social, networking and friendship groups linked to Round Table and 41 Clubs, are fundraising nationally for the RNLI in a bid to raise £50,000 for five jet skis for the charity’s lifeguards.

Simon Davidson, chairman of Exmouth lifeboat management group, said: “We were very pleased to host the members of Exeter Tangent at the lifeboat station.

“I’d like to thank them on behalf of our volunteers for their kind donation and to wish them well in their quest to purchase the all-important equipment for the RNLI lifeguards.”

Joining the Exeter branch members on the tour was Sue Hill, President of the National Association of Tangent Clubs.

The group was given a guided tour of the lifeboat station, the all-weather lifeboat, inshore lifeboat and the RNLI shop. They met volunteers and crew members, and had a fish and chip supper at the station.
