On 26 September we were delighted to support our the RNLI as our nominated charity for 2021 by playing at the naming ceremony for their new boat D-855 “Brenda Raworth”, including drumming her into the water down the slipway!
The ceremony included a speech by The Bay actor Daniel Ryan and performances from the Mitzzen Singers before the boat launch.
£200.29 was raised in a bucket collection on the day. Combined with the collection and online donations from our recent Morecambe busk, this makes a total of £961.53 raised so far this year for the RNLI from our charity gigs.
Chairman of the Lifeboat Management Group, Martyn Browitt said: “Thank you so much for your drumming at the Naming Ceremony, it really made a huge difference.”
We will be busking for the RNLI once again on 13 October, this time in Market Square, Lancaster.
