Following their very successful running of the 2011 Festival of Transport at Hellingly over the last August Bank Holiday weekend, Eastbourne Historic Vehicle Club have donated £750 towards Eastbourne RNLI’s new lifeboat appeal

The annual rally is used as a platform to help raise funds for many local charities and this year Eastbourne RNLI was delighted to once again be one of the beneficiaries. At a recent club meeting held at the Red Lion in Stone Cross, Lifeboat Coxswain Mark Sawyer received a cheque from club Vice President Mike Bray. In accepting the cheque Mark thanked the club for their continued support which, he said, will help continue the life saving work of Eastbourne RNLI in the seas around Eastbourne.
