Various members of the Fund Raising Committee and some of the Boathouse Attendants took part in two bucket collections at the Chichester branch of Tesco’s on Monday 24th and Friday 28th December 2012. Thanks to Ashley Pledger who works at the store and is the nephew of the 2nd Coxswain, Willy Pledger, we were able to take advantage of the generosity of shoppers on these two days.
Several of the collectors were brave enough to don the Stormy Stan outfit while collecting, much to the delight of the visiting children.
Thanks to the generosity of the shoppers who contributed, a fantastic sum of £962.83 was collected over the two days. This amount will be ear-marked for the Shannon Appeal for Selsey Lifeboat.
Our thanks to Tesco’s for allowing us this opportunity to start off the appeal in such a positive way.
