Outside the southport lifeboat charity shop Nigel Malyan (chairman of WLMGOC) presenting the cheque from L/R Sharon Anson, Nigel Malyan, Cath Wilson (founder member) and Michelle Wilson.
This is the second of our charity cheque’s of £100 out of four to be presented by WLMGOC and what a worthy cause it is!!! This was a nomination by Nigel Malyan (chairman) of the club a local person who lives in the town and knows how important this emergency service is to the people of the town and the holiday makers who flock to the resort in the summer enjoying the sun, beach and of course shopping in the very elegant lord street.
The Southport Lifeboat provides a lifeboat and land based rescue service around the Sefton coastline which stretches from the River Mersey to the the River Ribble and up to 25 miles offshore and including the marine lake. Since it’s formation in 1988 they have helped rescue over 250 people.
Southport Lifeboat is run by Southport Offshore Trust and is responsible for its own funding it is totally independent and receives NO funding from the RNLI.
As some people might have read they got broken into in December and two quad bikes where stolen from there premises so every penny raised is much needed in the replacement of these and other vital pieces of rescue equipment.
