Students and carers from Young Epilepsy, formally known as the National Centre for Young People with Epilepsy, visited RNLI Eastbourne this week to present a cheque toward the new Tamar lifeboat appeal 

The students had visited RNLI Eastbourne’s inshore lifeboat station at Fisherman’s Green in September as part of a project encompassing the seaside and people who help others. After a guided tour of the station and learning that an appeal had been launched to raise funds for a new Tamar class all weather lifeboat for the town they were keen to show their support in a practical way. Since then the students have been busy making gift tags which they have been selling to friends and supporters and managed to raise £100 which was presented to the station this week.
