Thanks as summer garden party raises ‘amazing amount’ for Exmouth RNLI

Funds from an annual summer garden party in aid of Exmouth RNLI will help pay for crew training and equipment.

Manor Lodge residential care home’s August garden party, in Portland Avenue, was organised by owners Ray and Gina Lovegrove and raised £1604 for the sea safety charity.

Manor Lodge manager Eileen O’Neill and residents from the home presented a cheque to the Exmouth RNLI crew during a tour of the Queen’s Drive lifeboat station.

Eileen said: “We had perfect weather for our fundraiser. There was a lovely crowd, everyone was happy and it was just an amazing and well-supported garden party.

“We are very pleased to have raised so much for Exmouth RNLI.”

Robin Humphreys, chair of Exmouth RNLI fundraising team, said: “We were very pleased to have our visitors from Manor Lodge residential care home at the lifeboat station.

“We’re so grateful to them for organising such an enjoyable garden party and for raising such an amazing amount for our life saving charity, all of which will go towards funding equipment and training for our volunteer crew at the station.”
