Thank you to heritage centre for brewing up more cash for lifeboats

EDITOR – The Caistor, Brigg and Market Rasen fundraising branch of the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution/Lifeboats) would like to offer their very sincere thanks to Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre for ‘Brewing Up a Storm’ to raise money for the lifeboats.

Centre manager Steph Dale wanted to help to raise funds for the lifeboats and took on board the Brew for the Crew campaign.

The result was held on bank holiday Saturday afternoon when there were afternoon teas, cream teas, sea shanty singing thanks to duo Richard and John, a tombola, raffle and book signings by the author of Rhymes of an Ancient Mariner, Norman McConochie, at the Heritage Centre.

Coping with the crowds who arrived seeking food were 
café manager Emma and her willing team who all kept smiling.

Helping with the background work for the RNLI, our thanks go to Gordon Oxby, Nev Wright, Chris Myburgh, Chris Robinson and other branch stalwarts who baked, sold raffle tickets and generally helped to keep the afternoon going.

Now all the money has been counted we are delighted to announce that a grand total of £602.91 has been raised by the event.

That really proves that the Brewing for the Crews (of Lifeboats) is very worthwhile.

Thank you everyone who supported this amazing venture.
