The residents of Deanland Wood Park retirement village have continued their longstanding support for Eastbourne Lifeboats and have raised another £900 for the charity to add to the almost £19,000 collected to date.  

For many years residents of the retirement village at Golden Cross have been holding weekly raffles and hosting special events to raise funds for Eastbourne Lifeboats. This latest donation was from profits accumulated from the weekly raffles and a special fish ‘n’ chips supper held recently at the on-site pub. The cheque was presented to Coxswain Mark Sawyer by Catering Manager Debbie Toms at the all-weather lifeboat station at Sovereign Harbour
