Royal Eastbourne GC 001Once again the members of Royal Eastbourne Golf Club have shown their support for Eastbourne lifeboats with another donation to the new lifeboat appeal 

Current men’s Captain and long-time friend of Eastbourne lifeboats, Jerry Cowell, nominated the appeal as his chosen charity for his year of Captaincy and raised £6000 over the year. The majority of the money was from Jerry’s ‘Captains Day’ competition and dinner back in the summer. In accepting the cheque on behalf of the appeal, Operations Manager Paul Metcalfe thanked Jerry and all the members of Royal Eastbourne for their continued support and said the money will go a long way to ensuring the station can continue saving lives at sea.
