Three cuddly teddies which had been donated to the RNLI were raffled at the recent Airbourne air show to help raise funds for Eastbourne’s lifeboats in order to continue their mission of saving lives at sea.  

The bears, originally won by lifeboat supporter Mr George Butler of Eastbourne at an Airbourne sideshow, were donated to the charity during the air show. One of the lucky winners was Elizabeth Greenwood-Spicer from Uckfield who received her bear from Lifeboat Operations Manager Paul Metcalfe on Sunday accompanied by her sister Alice and brother William.

The raffle raised a total of £72 over the weekend.
