HONITON: RNLI fundraisers stop off in Honiton
Friday, 07 February 2014
n Honiton was the first port of call for six RNLI lifeboat members who temporarily switched their boat for bicycles.
Exmouth RNLI crew members Max Champion, Stephen Satchel, Paul Fox, Lee Manning, Neil Cannon and Hedley Saunders were en route from Dunkeswell to Exeter when taking a break in Honiton on Saturday, January 25th.
The challenge marked the charity’s SOS Day and aimed to raise money towards the new launch and recovery vehicle needed for the new Exmouth lifeboat.
Mr Champion said prior to the ride: “Supacat, who have designed the specialist launch and recovery vehicle, needed to launch Exmouth’s new Shannon Class lifeboat.
“They are based in Dunkeswell - so we’re delighted to be able to start our cycle from their base.
“Our thanks go to the local businesses offering their support and generously providing entertainment for people wanting to cheer us on along the route.”
