The volunteer crew of Eastbourne Lifeboats welcomed Sussex Freemasons to their all-weather lifeboat station to receive a donation of £1,200
Andy Chequers, of Royal Connaught Lodge No. 2676, and his wife Mandy along with members John Laing, Lodge Charity Steward, and Edward Yates presented cheques to Dr Colin McKee, Chairman of the Lifeboat Management Group. £671 was raised at the Lodge's Ladies Night and a further donation of £529 was made by Sussex Masonic Charities Trustees.
Accepting the cheques on behalf of the Eastbourne Lifeboats, Colin said that the much appreciated donation will go towards funding protective clothing needed for new crew members in order to continue their life-saving work.
