RNLI - SOS appeal

You have no idea how long it's taken for me to get that collage of pics on to this blog!!! Aargh..........I've never professed to being a technical whiz but blimey there must be an easier way!!!!

Anyway - the SOS night was an amazing night.... we served 100 portion of sausages in the first 45 minutes - our pub resembled a canteen at one stage. Our thanks go to St Austell brewery for donating the top prize of a digital camera, we ourselves gave chocolates, champagne and voucher for £25. Everyone in Salcombe was very generous - from the local bookshop to a large chain - people gave willingly and we raised £363. But it was more than getting money out of people and making money ourselves in terms of business, it turned into a full scale community event and we personally made many new friends! All in all we guess there must have been about 150 people attended the event. I love the lifeboat lads - they are such a nice bunch - and when you think that they give their time free of charge, go out in really dangerous conditions and have no national funding from government (hmm probably not a bad thing!) then the job they do is just amazing!! So a huge thank you to everyone who helped make it such a success.
