Representatives from the Rotary Club of Eastbourne AM visited the all-weather lifeboat station on Sunday 4th Nov to present a cheque for £500. 

The club organised the popular lighthouse walk on 11th August where 1175 people took advantage of the spring tides to walk from Holywell to Beachy Head lighthouse and back. Some of the proceeds from the event have been put aside to repaint the iconic stripes and the remainder was donated to local charities. The cheque was presented to lifeboat treasurer Keith Stevens by Martin Wellings and Alan Young.
