Thanks for supporting the lifeboats

EDITOR – On behalf of the RNLI (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) Caistor fundraising branch, can I thank the organisers of the St Patrick’s evening Lyrical Affair, held at the Sports and Social Club, Caistor?

Deborah Barker and Mike Galligan organised this thoroughly enjoyable evening, involving countless members of the local community reading and reciting poetry and prose, much of it featuring an Irish or lifeboat connection.

Our thanks also go to John Burns Salmond for the donation of raffle prize.

As a branch we raised the magnificent sum of £90 from the raffle and every penny will go towards saving lives at sea.

Caistor is indeed fortunate to have such caring and community-minded people who help and support such charities as ours.
