Back in September 2015 Steve and Kathy Harley put forward a proposition to produce a calendar of (mainly) Selsey Lifeboat Station photographs.
People were encouraged through social media to submit their own photos and Clive Cockayne, Lifeboat Operations Manager, Max Gilligan, Lifeboat Press Officer and Crew Member, and myself, were invited by Steve and Kathy to judge the photos and vote for their inclusion. It was very tough to decide between them as they were all of an excellent standard. Steve had the casting vote and then the calendar was a reality.
Many people, quite rightly, bought the calendars as a keepsake rather than as something to use, since the old Lifeboat Station will be demolished this year to make way for our new one, and the amazing amount of £1050 was raised.
Our grateful thanks go to Steve and Kathy for all their hard work on such a successful fundraising idea.
