We are pleased to announce the count from the Southend Carnival has finished and we collected a staggering £1,452.59!!! This is the most we have ever raised at Carnival, so a massive massive thank you to everyone who donated to us during the evening!
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mikes Boatyard LTD for the use of the trailer and build facility, thanks to Adcock Agri Ltd for the use of the tractor and to Southend Timber for donating the wood. Of course, all this wouldn’t have been possible unless some of the crew and a team of willing volunteers didn’t put several weekends worth of work into making it such a successful float! You done the team very proud! 💪
Thank you again and see you at Leigh Lights 2019!
Due to the over whelming support from the shoppers in Tesco across 3 local regions Southend Lifeboat came top of the charities in the blue token customer vote.
This means that Southend Lifeboat will receive £12,000 towards crew training.
A BIG thank you to all Tesco shoppers who voted for us.
A BIG thank you to all who came out to support the Southend Carnival at the weekend.
Thank you again if you donated to Southend RNLI as every penny will go towards supporting our Lifeboat Station.
Come and see Southend RNLI in the Carnival procession later today. We will be right at the front of the floats so you can’t miss us!
Any spare change that you might have will be greatly appreciated and put to good use helping maintain our local lifeboat service.
