Terry McGlone Group 8 Chairman (centre right) is giving a cheque for £2011 at Margate Lifeboat Station on the 6th May. This is to be equally shared by the Margate, Ramsgate and Whitstable RNLI stations.
The money was raised from an initiative called “Do your bit fund our kit” at an event hosted by Birchington and Westgate Golf Club who catered for Area 8 Freemasons and members of the above lifeboat crews.
Peter Barker, the local RNLI Press officer, on behalf of the three stations, thanked both the Golf Club and Thanet Freemasons for their support to this charity that saves lives at sea. Appropriately our presentation was made after routine training exercise for volunteer crew at Margate on 6th May. Representatives from each of the stations were present
