Eastbourne lifeboats have received a donation of £3000 from the Duke of Devonshire’s charitable trust. 

Lifeboat Coxswain Mark Sawyer accepted the cheque on behalf of Eastbourne Lifeboats from Estates Secretary Susan Body at a recent presentation. Lifeboat spokesman Bob Jeffery thanked the Duke for his continued support saying the cash would go towards equipping at least two crewmen with the specialist equipment they require to continue their mission of saving lives at sea.
