Earlier this year Councillor Colin Belsey and his wife Terri arranged a Brass Band Concert in aid of the Eastbourne new lifeboat appeal at which over £1000 was raised. 

The music was provided by the Lewes, Glynde and Beddingham Brass Band and the venue donated by The Kings Centre at Hampden Park. A good attendance made the evening go with a swing with a variety of music being performed including a virtuoso performance by lifeboat crewman Alex Emberley on a toilet bowl and an enthusiastic attempt at conducting by Lifeboat Operations Manager Paul Metcalfe.
