Budleigh Lions festive dip donation will help fund Exmouth RNLI training and equipment

Budleigh Salterton Lions Club presented Exmouth RNLI with more than £1000 from a beach collection at December’s festive dip.

Exmouth RNLI said the donation of £1169 would help fund training and equipment for the volunteer lifeboat crew.

The Lions said the club hopes to make the donation annually after Budleigh’s Christmas Day swim.

The club presented the cheque to Exmouth RNLI on Tuesday evening, January 14, at the Dog and Donkey, Knowle.

Peter Holmes, president of Budleigh Salterton Lions Club, said: “It’s been another great pleasure for Budleigh Salterton Lions to raise funds for Exmouth RNLI at our town’s Christmas swim and I’d like to thank our members and all those who supported our beach collection and gave so generously to this important local charity.

“We hope to make this a regular Christmas collection in support of Exmouth RNLI.”

Robin Humphreys, chair of Exmouth RNLI’s fundraising committee, said: ”We would like to express our grateful thanks to the Budleigh Salterton Lions Club.”
