WHSC Commodore Roy Power has thanked everyone who contributed to raising record funds for the RNLI during the club’s annual fundraising coffee morning and fresh produce sale.
“Over a very busy weekend – with the Club Cruiser Championships, the Dale Morris and Harris Trophy Parent and Child races also on – it was an excellent opportunity to do our annual RNLI fundraising coffee morning and fresh produce sale,” he said.
“Organised by Maria Walsh and Trish Power, the morning was a fantastic success. The final money count has yet to be done and it looks like it will be a record total. Our sincere thanks to all those who donated prizes and cakes, bought and sold tickets and flowers and fresh produce, and to the local RNLI crew who came along on the day to meet junior members.”
He also gave special mention “for two enterprising junior members Anna Brazil and Polly Rogers” who wrote, researched and designed a “fantastic” Nooks and Crooks guide to Dunmore East to raise funds for the lifeboat.
“And please remember next weekend is WHSC Club Dinghy Champships which promises to be another great weekend,” he added.
