Alton Webteam: February 2016
Junior Section and Anchor Boys are running another of our 'posh' coffee mornings to raise funds for the RNLI. It will take place from 10 am to 12 noon on Saturday 13th February in the church. Some of the Junior boys will wait at table and serve you with drinks and delicious cake. There will also be information about the work of the RNLI and a stall with small RNLI souvenirs to buy.
The boys were given a talk by an RNLI representative and were really excited and impressed by the work that RNLI volunteers do, usually in dreadful weather and appalling sea conditions. This important organisation is staffed and funded by volunteers and gets no government funding yet we expect them to be on hand to rescue those at the seaside or on cliffs or in peril on the sea. An amazing organisation! The boys will really appreciate your support for this event (cakes and goodies are welcome as well as your presence!)
The Junior Boys are also looking forward to a visit to our "local" Lifeboat station at Selsey soon and especially to looking around a real lifeboat!
Do, please, come along to the coffee morning, enjoy a break and help a worthy cause!
